  1. There is a big difference between brake fluid and break cleaner. Non-chlorinated brake cleaner is safe on hard plastics.
  2. You spray brake cleaner down the primer magazine? What frequency do you spray it out? I assume you are using non-chlorinated brake cleaner to prevent any corrosion?
  3. I don't think this got answered but the factory guard ejection port opening is about 0.62 in. I don't really see a need to open up the port if the extractor and ejector are working correctly.
  4. Anyone trying to install the extra power extractor spring make sure you aren't trying to use the original plug or an o-ring. With the larger diameter end of the spring down on the bolt you should be able to lay the extractor on top of it then compress it in the middle and insert the pin.
  5. I am running on colt mags but I modified my mag slots. When I added the extra power extractor spring I don't need to use a plug or an o-ring.
  6. I had some extraction issues and solved it with an extra power extractor spring and removed the plug completely. Zero issues since then. Do you have some pics of your extractor where it looks like it is contacting the barrel extension?
  7. I have never seen a metalform mag (the only legitimate colt mags) need tuning.
  8. I have never heard of tuned colt smg mags, how are they tuned?
  9. $44 for an uncaptured guide rod and a replacement spring when you can just by a single spring and spend 10 seconds opening one end, no thanks.
  10. Think I read they weren't being released until late Dec.
  11. Just bottom out whatever primer you use, problem solved. I load everything with CCI SRP with zero issues, even with striker fired guns.
  12. If they had water in them they were never dried properly to begin with. Also this usually causes primers to corrode in the pocket and results in a lot of ringers.
  13. No I have not because I stop on my 650 when it doesn't feel like the primer is inserting normal. Even if it did light up the stack the way this bowl is designed it looks unlikely it would effect anything held in the bowl feeder, the tube on the press would be destroyed regardless.
  14. It would be awesome if they offered a way to mount it directly to a Dillon press and set it up to feed primers like a case feeder. That would allow you to load every how many primers the bowl will hold and it could feed primers directly into the press as you are running.
  15. I would be concerned with any lube that could dampen the powder and potentially prevent a complete powder burn.
