Your anvil is not returning to the home position to allow the brad to index into the receiver. Try and push the anvil up all the way to the home position. If that works, then you need lubrication, new return spring, etc. All related to the anvil firing.

My Reliant brad gun won't take an 1 1/4" brad. It only goes up to 1 3/16". I have to find more of those myself.

Hi, W/D here.
On the side of the slide that holds the nails will be a tab. If the gun is empty, it will be close to the base of the slide, near the head of the gum. Grasp the tab, and pull it all the way back until it locks in place. Load your nails. Now, near where the tab that you pulled back is locked in place, you will see a (usually) silver button. Pull back slightly on the first tab, then push the button, releasing the lock. Let the slide push the nails into place, and you're ready to go. Place 2 drops of oil daily in the nail gun where the air line connects, then hook up the air line. Fire away!
Here is a link to an exploded diagram of your nail gun. Double click the diagram to enlarge it. On the right side of the page is the link to a free download manual. Enjoy!
Best regards, --W/D--
Please feel free to rate this carefully hand-crafted solution, made especially for you. Thanks.
