the mark7 automates the 1050
if your 1050 is perfect and runs perfect, it runs perfect with mark7
99% of my issues/stops has been issues with the 1050, like sticking case plunger, to much lube in primer circuit getting stuck on prep machine and primer slide etc.
so yes Im happy, currently own 3 mark7s, the LTE, the X and the pro. I feel the X is where the value is at, the pro is cool though.
In general I have few stops, on the 40 machine I will have one every.. hmm 2-3k rounds, like a toppeld bullet, I havent bought bulletsense yet.
for prepping, it pretty much runs flawless now, had a crank bolt back out, but red loctite has seem to solved it, I removed entire priming system as well, and loosend case feeder, it can now run thousands without stops.
