GCN-MEPMAG Gas-Actuated Concrete Nailer

GCN-MEPMAG

The GCN-MEPMAG and GCN-MEP gas-actuated concrete nailers are portable fastener tools for attaching light-duty fixtures to concrete, steel, concrete block (CMU), lightweight concrete over metal deck, and coldformedsteel. As a magazine tool, GCN-MEPMAG is ideal for attaching drywall track, furring strips, hat track and angle track using GDP and GDPS collated pins.

GCN-MEPMAG offers you the flexibility of having two tools in one convenient package — a magazine tool and a single-shot tool, since the magazine is easily removed without additional assembly tools. As a single-shot tool, the GCN-MEP is great for attaching mechanical, electrical and plumbing fixtures with pre-assembled pins/accessories such as washer pins, ceiling clips, tophats and threaded studs. The pre-assembled pins for the single-shot tool use 0.300"-headed fasteners with 0.125"-diameter shanks for stronger fastening performance.

Both the single-shot and magazine tool offer portability without the need for cords or hoses, and are actuated with GFC34 gas fuel cells.

Key Features

  • Power to drive 0.125"-diameter pins
  • Flexibility to drive 1/2" to 1 1/2" pins
  • Flexibility to drive 0.250" and 0.300" dia. headed pins
  • Pin-depth adjustment dial
  • Battery charge indicator light
  • Comfortable “sure-grip” rubber handle and ladder hook
  • Easy start-up procedure: Insert fuel cell, insert battery, load pins, and begin use
  • FREE tool first-aid repair program (see back cover of operator's manual)

Minimum Cleaning Required
The GCN-MEP has a very efficient ignition system that provides complete fuel combustion. This results in a cleaner operating tool, which, in turn, results in more tool energy and higher productivity. To maintain maximum level of productivity, periodic cleaning is recommended.

  • Only requires cleaning every 20,000 shots
  • Easy access to the air filter and piston chamber
