Hi, has anyone got any recommendations for type and source of 90mm galv nails for my IM350 framing nailer?

There are so many non-branded and third party makes out there now that I could do with a recommendation?
The genuine ones are so darn expensive so I'd like to save a few quid but equally want decent enough quality as poor firing and jams are just a PITA!

I've used rawplug and paslode and although many said only used genuine I've had no issues at all.
Bought all of mine on gumtree...they are a regular post in my area and half the price of screwfix...
Do a search for paslode and go from there

Be careful with rawl gas as it doesn't bode well with my hitachi guns at all. Something to do with mixture % or summat but my guns hate it.
Regards, Nick.

Make sure the lid of the gas is adapted properly for your guns. When I got my Bostitch branded gas/nail packs the cylinder had a diagram sequence showing how to adapt the lid of it for Paslode or non-Paslode guns

Just to update my own thread, in the end I took a punt on these from eBay.

I've fired circa 500 with no issues at all.
