    casey your right, ive had that issue with generic framing clips..

    it has to do with the angle of the clips not being right for the gun itself. they wont feed correctly

    In this case the angle was fine, but the sticky binding tape was clogging the slot the nails feed into; the spring was not strong enough to overcome the debris and advance the next one to the firing pin.
    But yes, the proper clip angle is crucial. As is the head shape and the spacing.

    what about the paper collated hitachi. we have 3 of them and they just wont die. not only that their the only gun ive used that can sink spikes into lvl, glulam and timberstrand. every other gun ive used leaves the nails anywhere from 1/4- 1/2" proud
