  1. I'm not sure if you were talking to me... but my experience is only with the 1100 and a 650 before that. I've got friends with 1050s and have observed them on a number of occasions. My feeling is that the 1100 is an slight upgrade from the 1050 but not a "big upgrade". I think the main design difference is the bottom end is derived from the older RL1050 which is considered more robust. Day to day operation is identical. Same number of stations. Same priming system. Same case feeder. Slight redesign of the primer station which makes it easier to extract a case fr

  3. Prior to installing the GG kit I fooled around with bending the trigger bar return spring. I did this on a stock Sig spring that I had inadvertently bent while re-installing the trigger bar following a detail strip. I was able to lower the trigger pull weight a decent amount but it was a while back and it looks like I didn't record any data. I didn't trust it and replaced it with a new Sig spring until the GG kit was available again. I've also heard of people using only one of the two sear springs. I have not tried that myself. Caveat emptor: I'm not
  4. I believe DirectDrive is referring to trigger return spring and sear spring weights; not recoil spring weight.
  5. Interesting. I've got mine backed way out. It is not part of the indexing process with my setup. I rely solely upon the proximity switch. I've learned that these machines can be rather idiosyncratic, what seems to work fine for one person may not work very well at all for someone else.
  6. lol... Covid 19 is making it tough. My desire for immediate gratification when buying a new toy has definitely been challenged.
  7. Correct. They are no longer available from Ammobot which was sold to Dillon. You can get tech support from Ammobot for existing units but no new sales. At some point in the future they will be available from Dillon. Supposedly.
  8. Standard Dillon swage backer die over swage station. Die is turned down so no expander function; only swage backing. Lee Universal Case expander die with guts replaced by MBF funnel over the primer station. I like being able to separate the swage backing from the expanding.
  9. Boomstick303, All my 320 mags with TTI extensions fit the gauge but they are right on the edge. I'd be very interested to know what you've done with your feed lips as to give myself a little wiggle room. Thanks. PS: Do you have any pictures?

  11. At this point in time I'd be inclined to go with the sure thing; the Blue Bulllet load that works. When/if things get better might be a better time to experiment.
  12. How does the washer affect the shell plate jerk? I guess it's not obvious to me. Thanks!
  13. Excellent. Good to hear. Also: The main shaft appears to be very dry in that picture. There are a number of places on that machine that require regular lubrication. That is one of them.
  14. Yeah, loosening the bolt is not a solution. That will just mess up your machine. Something else you could try: Pull the toolhead and remove the shell plate. This will allow you to see the interaction of the pins and the frame much more clearly. Re-install the toolhead. There are three pins of interest: 1. The pin at the right rear which goes through the primer slide. 2. The pin at the left front. 3. The pin that activates the primer punch. Operate the machine and examine the behavior of the machine as each of those pins e
  15. Yeah, seems like the alignment pins are the next suspect. But it seems like that should be fairly obvious if there is interference with the pins. When the alignment pins go through the shell plate does it move at all? If you pulled the entire toolhead off then the ram would raise and lower cleanly, no interference?
