  1. I bought a large shipment of brass from them about a year ago. I am out and am looking for more. I was surprised to learn their phone is disconnected, the homepage is down and my emails bounce back. Did they close the business? If anybody knows anything I will appreciate the info. Thanks.
  2. Mark 7 Bullet sense sensor

    Is that next on the list of sensors?? That would be a great addition....
  3. Mark 7 software update

    At my place of work we have 2, an X and a Pro. Updating the Pro went easy,and I really like that it is infact possible to get a good index speed now. Up to this point we ran an index speed of 9, and still got a fair share of bullet topple. Now we run it at 3 and barely get a single one! FYI at the 2400 setting with index 3, the machine produces 1960 an hour. To further decrease the case wobble I think you need FFB shell plates. We run processed brass so have not felt any difference with the jam sensitivity. It is set at 0 as it always is and picks up stuff as it always has! The X on the other hand has been a bit more troublesome. According to the system itself, it has the correct firmware and software installed but nothing has changed with the index speed, which I don't really understand.
  4. I too have been having tons of problems with primers being smashed or going in sideways. It is especially bad when loading 40. I have read every thread there is on the subject and have been trying to fix it for years to no avail. Has anybody ever figured out where exactly the problem occurs? Is it when the primer goes into the slide or when it goes into the case? Considering there are so many aftermarket parts out there for the 1050, that nobody has come up with a solution for the primer problem is beyond me. If I were making aftermarket stuff that is where I would start because that is the only real problem this machine has... if you ask me.
  5. Mark 7 1050 Autodrive

    I'm curious and have a few questions 1. When changing calibers how does one go about determining the tightness of the shell plate? I always cycle the press slowly and if I feel too much resistance I loosen the nut. What is the procedure for this with the Mark 7 installed? 2. Do the new ones ship with the EMI filter for the casefeeder or does that have to be ordered separately? 3. Do you guys use the DAA powder funnel? I don't because I do not like the "thump" feeling when the case slips off the funnel. I hardly do not have a bullet that does not tumble during indexing, so I figure I will have to use the DAA funnel. I do not see it mentioned in connection with the Mark 7, so I am curious to know if people are using it or doing something else to keep bullets from toppling over.
  6. Interested in the Ammobot

    I get a "sorry this content is unavailable right now" - window when clicking the link in your signature or copying it. What is the full name of the facebook group? i get nothing when searching for "Ammobot". Maybe check your privacy settings
  7. Interested in the Ammobot

    Alright then. I will keep my eye on the homepage and look forward to the details of this add-on. If one want to purchase this add-on, will the machine be delivered with the appropriate controller then? The facebook link does not work, and when searching for Ammobot I am not able to find anything.
  8. Interested in the Ammobot

    Thank you for answering my questions. I am aware that it is not meant to be left unattended and do not plan to do so. But for instance when a primer is crushed, you cannot tell from looking at the machine, and if the primer is lodged between the shell plate and the base of the machine, I fear something in the primer mechanism will bend or break, when the machine forces the handle back up. What is your take on that? Could you please elaborate on you answer to question 6 on the positional feedback. That sounds interesting. The machine is not ITAR regulated so I would assume that you do not need export papers to export it.
  9. Interested in the Ammobot

    I have come to realize that the amount of ammo I load for my girlfriend and I each year, I should consider some automatisation. I work at a company where we load ammunition and have been using PW drives - I have bad experience with those. The Ammobot seems like a better solution. I have watched all the videoes on youtube and read the few posts and threads on it here. A few questions have arisen: 1. How much extra height does it ad to the complete setup? 2. When using PW we loose 1/6th of the speed due to herz variation (located in Denmark). Will this also be the case with this machine? If yes, is there a "Europe" version? or can you make one? 3. As i understand it the machine stops when encountering too much resistance. But how much exactly? Will it stop because of a Berdan primed case? What about a case that falls over on its way to station 1? 4. I have seen RPM numbers raging from 1800-2200. Which is correct? 5. The primer pocket probe, when encountering a ringer, will it stop the machine or discard the brass from the Shell plate like I've seen on a video with 45 brass and small primer pockets? 6. This one is a bit tricky, bear with me! I saw the video of you sticking a hammer into the machine during operation. As I understand it, when unable to complete the stroke due to an obstruction, the machine will raise the handle and stop. Sometimes when the 1050 crushes a primer (which happens often), the primer will get stuck between the base of the machine and the shellplate. If you were to force the handle up at this point, I am confident that will result in something breaking or being bent badly. Plus, you will have an un-crimped cartridge in the bin. Is there a way to get the machine to just stop where it is, without performing an upstroke? This way you could prevent the 2 situations stated above and simply manually raise the handle and clear the jam. 7. What can I expect in shipping costs to Europe? I hope you are able to answer my questions
  10. Nitro Fin...Who uses them

    Sorry for the hi-jack! Were you able to fit the extended STI mag release paddle on your SVI mag release? Interested in knowing if its possible or if I have to get another magcatch at the same time.
  11. I´m about to order some springs from Wolff but cannot find any comparison info on the difference between these 2 types of springs. The conventional spring is pretty much self-explanatory but the one that Wolff lists as variable, is that the braided type that comes with the gun from the factory, or something entirely different? The conventional springs go from 14lbs to 24lbs whereas the variable ones go from 10lbs to 19lbs. I´m guessing both types work with the factory guide rod?
  12. Which hammer spring to use with E2 grips?

    All the stuff is there, just need a softer spring.
  13. Which hammer spring to use with E2 grips?

    I was about to order some hammer springs to a P226, so I have them when the gun arrives. On Wolff´s home page it says that the newer type gun with the plastic spring seat will need the newer and shorter hammer spring. I plan on installing the E2 grips when the gun arrives. Does that change anything in regards to the hammer spring?
  14. Czechmate Reliability

    My friend had a Czechmate! The barrel cracked at the same spot! Believe he got a replacement. The had under 8000 rounds through it!
  15. Lightening Trigger Pull and Polishing Internals

    Kneelingatlas, I actually tried that recently and if anything it made matters worse! I use a 16lbs hammer spring and an Xtreme firing pin - the one that works with the FPB! I use Magtech primers and usually do not have ignition problems but that changed last weekend! Had many failures and first changed the hammer spring to a new 16lb which did not help! I took the FPB out and as that did not help I started cutting off coils on the FP spring. To my surprise it did not change anything and it wasnt until I took the firing pinn from my Limited, that works without the FPB, I started getting reliable ignition!
