  1. But I don't know (and no one has been able to tell me) if the gun is long enough with the large back strap installed.
  2. I already did. They measured it alright, and it's right on the line. They could not tell me if it was measured without a backstrap, or with one. There is a specific way the government want it measured (it sounds stupid, I know) usually we don't follow this very accurate way of measuring, but since the gun is so close, we need to this time. That is was I seek help to do
  3. I am looking for owners of this pistol. My company is the Danish importer and distributor for Ruger firearms. We believe this pistol would be a huge competitor to Glock, M&P and the like. Danish gun laws dictate a minimum overall length on handguns to be 8,27". Ruger puts the overall length of the pistol to be 8,31". That is very close. Close enough that it could easily be measured wrong. The real problem here is that the gun comes with 3 different sized back straps, and if it needs the large one to be long enough, the end user can simply swap it for the short one making the gun illegal. I
  4. Ammoload only. I hear from a lot of people in the industry that the camdex machines are poorly constructed, meaning the parts are not within spec and sometimes complete machines have to go to an engineer shop to get fixed. On the other hand I also know a few who run Camdex machines and are quite happy. I just don't want to take the chance. I do not hear of the same problems with the ammoload.
  5. I work for a firearms distributor in Europe. We also produce ammunition for hansguns. We use Dillon 1050's on Mark7 autodrives. I have a setup at home as well. I have probably loaded 250k for personal use the past 7 years, and well over 2 million commercially including brass processing. One thing I can promise you: the 1050's will make you pull hair out of your head! There are so many issues and quirks with these machines I wouldn't know where to begin. You REALLY need to know what you are doing if you want them to run smoothly. If I was starting out today I would not consider 1050's! If I had
  6. I usually do use a qtip to clean both the inner primer tube on the machine as well as the tube of the primer filler. I fixed the problem by putting a small piece of electrical tape on the jaws of the tip. My thought was that if I could mechanically prevent the primer from getting stuck between the jaws the problem would be solved. Of course the underlying issue is that sometimes primer no.2 is dragged forward with the slide. Could be they are a little out of spec, I don't know. Now the tape prevents it from being stuck into the tip. I don't know if Dillon makes the tips
  7. Thank you :). What annoys me the most is, that the 5 years I have had the machine, a worn tip used to be the only reason for this problem. Now I can change the tip, and load 10 rounds then it happens...
  8. Yes. I have load anything other than stuff that uses small primers.
  9. I am about to loose my mind. I have been having this problem lately. It is a known problem, but usually a sign that the blue tip simply needs changing. I am having the problem constantly even with new tips. I can hardly load 20 rounds between occurrences. When removing the delrin triangle holding the brass in place, I can clearly see what is happening. The moment the primer slide starts moving, no 2 primer in the tube moves forward with the slide and then being caught between the jaws of the blue tip, preventing new primers from being fed. I've been tinkering with this sh*t for days.
  10. 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.
  11. Is that next on the list of sensors?? That would be a great addition....
  12. 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
  13. 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 o
  14. 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 h
