Just purchased a Numax SP123 pinner from Amazon for Under $30.
I had a project to apply some fine moulding which would be split by 18 guage brads and did a seach on pinners. Did not want to spend alot as I did not know if I would ever use it again and found this one and by looking it appeared to be good value.
Anyway, got it along with some 3/4” pins and it really works great so far. It will shoot 1/2’ to 1” pins and has has a setting which adjust the depth of the magazine to support the different length pins. It came with a quick connect fitting installed which was the correct size for my hoses which was a plus.
The body is heavy aluminum and very little plastic anywhere else. It only has one safety near the trigger so once disengaged you have to be careful as it will fire (no push tip pressure safety) and no padded tip, but had no problem with marring the fine moulding.
It sets the pin just below the surface and using very little filler the holes were invisible after finishing nor did the pin split the moulding.
I gave it five stars based on price and quality for the money, even though it had a funky safety and lacked the tip cushion.
Good value for the $.
