  1. Check out "The Sig Guy" on Youtube. Here is one of his 320 videos on disassembly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RYfv9XsUYGQ He has an assembly video also plus numerous others. Suggestion: Get a pick with a 90 degree angle. It will help with removing/reinstalling the takedown safety lever. Also: The most challenging aspect is reassembling the sear, sear springs, and associated components back into the sear block. The first couple of times it does take a while. It is more involved than a 1911 but if I can do it so can you.
  2. I'm far from a gunsmith however I don't find detail stripping a 320 to be particularly challenging. If you have a gunsmith that is having trouble I find that somewhat amusing.
  3. I've always wondered if the striker spring might be an area where one could experiment. I've not see any aftermarket striker springs for a p320 but I know they exist for other platforms.
  4. Good to know. I've got a bunch of WMA that I've set aside thinking one day I'll try to reload them.
  5. Also you can observe the primer in the slide as it slides out from under the primer tube and moves towards the shell plate. Make sure the primer is aligned correctly at that point in the process. If it is then the problem is occurring past that point. Probably as the primer punch is coming up through the slide or as the primer is inserted into the case.
  6. I think the 10 station presses are your only option for that requirement. Mark 7 Evo/Revo/Apex or perhaps the not yet released Frankford. And as you suspect the Dillon 1050/1100 will not allow that setup.
  7. I get it. Dillon is hard to get a hold of these days. I've had better luck calling them and then selecting the "call back" option. I've submitted warranty request tickets via the web site that have never been responded to after weeks (and weeks...). I've stopped trying to use that "feature".
  8. It wouldn't be the first time that someone had to adjust that pin by giving it a wack with a soft mallet or a block of wood and a hammer. Is this a tool head that has worked ok in the past?
  9. Are you referring to the alignment pin which extends down through the shell plate and ensures the tool head is indexed correctly?
  10. I have some RMR 124 JHP MPR that I haven't started development on. I could spare 100. If that works PM me your contact info and we'll figure out shipping etc.
  11. I hope so. My experience with the 1100 leads me to think it may not work out like that. Prior to purchasing it I might have assumed that the 1100 fixed some number of 1050 issues. After using it for a year I doubt if that is true. I've never owned a 1050 but it seems that everything that gives people trouble on a 1050 is there with the 1100 also. Two different companies I realize...
  12. That is a notable pricing difference for sure. To make it more apples to apples we'd have to add the price of a case feeder to the FX 10 price. There'd still be about a $2k difference.
  13. Is the case feeder different from what is currently offered?
  14. One thought that occurs to me is that you would lose the redundancy that two presses provide.
  15. If the case is "tilting" as you say then it doesn't matter what die is installed. The "tilt" has nothing to do with the die. The dillon die may mask the problem due to it having a slightly more forgiving radius at the mouth. When I've had case interference problems at station 1 I've done the following on various occasions: 1. With the tool head completely populated: 1a. Loosen the lock ring on the sizing die 1b. Raise the tool head until cases are completely inserted 1c. Tighten lock ring on sizing die When that doesn't work I've had to fiddle
