    I can't wait to get my Ingersoll Rand 2135TI impact!! I just saw one at Sears Essentials by my house. First time I have seen that model up close. I can't believe it is so small and light and has balls to rip almost any bolt/lug off:eek1:

    if you have access to one, check out a snap-on mg31... the 2135 is a good gun, but the mg31 is even nicer, and a longer warranty too!

    I believe ya, but if anyone suggests there's a better gun than an IR, sh*t flies in here..

    I just saw a few mg31's on ebay. Not too bad of a deal! I might pick one up in a 3/8 version.

    The ft lbs look lower than the IR though:confused: Says 300ft. lbs?

    says 300, and is rated at 90 psi and i think 4.5cfm... 300 ftlbs is rockin for a 3/8 gun... our 1/2" xt7100 is rated at 700....on a test bench, it clocked almost 1100 ft lbs...

    I use all Ingersoll Rand air tools, good stuff. Half of the Blue Point/Snap-On air stuff is made by IR anyway.:D

    Well, I was positive that Blue Point used IR rebadged tools, and stretched it to Snappy air tools too.:D

    Regardless, I have a Snap on M3 something 3/8" air gun, isn't any better than an IR version I have. I just don't see spending twice as much on a Snap On gun when I don't think they are that much better (none IMHO) than IR.

    So tell me Snap on man... why is the Snap On brand air tools better than IR? (seriously, I'm trying to learn something, not being an asshat)?:D

    well the mg31 red s/o impact is stronger, faster and has an anvil stop feature, than a 2115ti... also a 2 year warranty to boot... it's easier for us, where i run my route to get a S/o gun fixed than an IR, there's one guy in town who does IR and he doesnt do warranty, and IR had us sending them to ohio where the idiots wouldnt fix them, send them back in pieces and they were badged "unrepairable" at 6 months old... so i sell what my customers can rely on having work for them, or fixed when necessary.. also snapons have generally better low pressure performance (but snappy aint had a decent 1/2" gun in 2 years) but the im6500hp is a goodie....

    The only thing discouraging me from spending that kind of dough on a Snappy gun (the red 1/2" magnesium guy) is from watching the guys in my shop that went through 3 or 4 guns where the trigger popped out of the housing.

    they fixed that, and went back to the common sense design they used for 20 years and put a rollpin back in... they left it out for arguments sake at first because its fine at 90 psi, but who the F runs only 90 psi? you should see at about 165 psi and hook the hose up, watch out lol.... the new ones are fixed, just pull the grip back 1/4" and see...
