Mine won't , yours might . The D head on rack nails allows them to lie next to each other in the magazine and fire without fouling the neighbouring nail . The only gun I have that will fire round headed nails is a coil gun , the nails are well spaced , perhaps twice that of the nail shank between each .

Probably not. The Senco clipped nails are real close to round head anyway.

I see on their website that they sell a 34 degree nailer that looks a lot like my old one. Model sn3. It looks like the new one fires clipped head or off set round head. It also says that it can use 30 or 34 degree nails. I saw some 30 degree round head nails at harbour freight. I wonder if my gun will fire them. The Senco website wasn't working too good.

When we built a couple of houses in Japan, we took our Bostitch nailers with us. No nails. They gave us some Hitachi units that fired full sized nails. Downside was that they were held together with plastic strips. Anyone in the area of nailing needed a face shield or safety glasses ! Plastic shards everywhere. Nice light units and the nails were stronger than the wire strip type.

Depends on the model. I have a clipped head only Senco, and a full head only Senco. Bought that one when I lived in the Phoenix area as clipped head was not allowed by code.

There are also offset full head nails that will work in a clipped head nailer. 'Normal' full heads will not.

No! Clipped head nails are a different degree from full round head nails.

This ^^^^

Clipped nails are usually 30-something degrees and full head are 20-something degrees. Also, FRH nails are almost all plastic collated and clipped nails are paper collated.

They do make a nearly-full-head nail for clipped nailers that most codes requiring FRH nails will accept, it has just a little bite take out of each head to make them stack. But they are more expensive.
