Hi all, does anyone know if the 18v nailer is going to be released again? I've read the threads here about why it was discontinued etc. I'm seriously looking at Ryobi or Hitachi but there isn't any info on another Bosch being released. It's a shame the other was pulled from sale as it got plenty of good reviews from what I can see online. Thanks!

I second the above, 
Also is Bosch planning a pistol shaped compact sander/polisher like the Milwaukee M12bps?

Hi all

I've gone looking for more info for you all. But as you have all noticed the GSK 18V has been removed from the UK range due lack of interest for the most part. It's not all bad news we have brought machines back to the UK market in the past. But I don't have anything concrete.

The pistol shaped compact sander is not something we are looking at but we have due to release a 18V palm sander in the near future.

Thanks for the update Bob even though it's bad news! Second hand Bosch nailers go for well over £200 so there is definitely a demand somewhere.

Hi all

I got some more info for you all since my last message. Despite being suspended from the European market there ARE plans to bring it back. I’m being a  tease I know.  However to be straight ( that is how I am ) there has been no date confirmed for when so I wouldn't base any purchasing decision on there being a return to market soon.

Good to know anyway though, thanks.  Im sure I read somewhere it was removed from sale due to unsatisfactory parts or performance or similar.

Shame on the sander, I have the GSS18v already, bought from ebay also got stung with expensive import duty.
anyway took the plunge and got the milwaulkee m12bps must say its a great tool and now find it odd that other brands have not got a similar product, would have liked to have stuck with bosch as have lots of 10.8 batteries and having another platform sucks with more charger etc

Thanks for the heads up on the nailer

Bob the GSK nailer is not on sale because it is not fit for purpose. There are many threads on here about it. Why would come out with the above statement? Bent as a nine Bob note! Straight my arse.

Well to be honest I said it a year ago and at the time a relaunch of the GSK was not off the books. I did say not to wait for it if you needed a 18V nailer any time soon. That's as fair as I could be.
