I bought mine at Lowes fo 25 cents each bought 3. It was easier to just go there & have it the same day than to wait a week for a $0.25 part! :devil:

Word!

Nothing sucks worse than needing to load on a machine dead in the water due to a $.25 part. I have learned the hard way to keep a bunch of spares.

Dillon sell a spare parts kit for all thier machines, those clips are included in the kit, You need a spare parts kit, its the only way to keep from having to wait for parts. Just remember to call Dillon for a replacement when you use one out of the kit.----------Larry

the c-clips for the sizing are not provided with spare parts kit ;) ;)

Definitely not in the kits. Found that out a couple weeks back. Just pulled one off another die to keep going. Dillon sent me about 8 spares so I should never break another one now.

Jeez, I am now missing the E clip form my primer bar ( the one on the White roller wheel) I called Dillon to find out it's size. 5/32 in case anyone looks for it. The guy said it was easy to find at a hardware store.

c clip

FYI if you are replacing them yourself at the local hardware store... it's a 1/4" E Clip

Thank you that was staring to bug me as I read this thread.

And thank god Dillon never used any Jeez-- clips that I know of otherwise they wouldn't break just fly away some where. :)

Thank you for this thread.
It's the WE and Dillon is not available.


The clip popped off while reloading and....
Thanks to Dillon's  myopia:
 

1.)They did not put any info on the die instructions, and I ended up ordering

1/8" c-clips from Amazon  because they got here in 24 hours.

2.) I bought their questionable  master parts kit for the 1050 and of course there is no 1/4" e-clip in the kit.
(nor the spring - nor the pin that is easy to lose on the seating die)

3.) Searched the hell out of their site, and they don't  list this part..

 

4.) Tried 3rd parties that would answer on the WE and they said to go to the closed down Dillon people.

5.)  Thanks to not having an e-clip replacement, I have now lost the spring!!

The more time that goes by the less I am fond of Dillon the company.

The press is just fine, it is just dealing with the continued short sightedness on their part that is difficult to stomach.

Thanks this thread helped a lot.
Joe

I just went to Amazon, and none of the e-clip kits  have 5/32", and it sure is not in my master parts kit that they hit me up for.


Going to write this size down in the manual as I am sure Dillon left out that detail also. 😃
Thanks for the info.

Thanks I found the clips!
I would have sworn that they were not in the parts kit as they looked way too large. 
It matters not now as I have also lost the spring due to not having the clip handy 😐

DIllon could earn a lot more of my trust, if they used their brains, and  had a parts list with the part kit

that  matched  parts numbers on the  individual parts in the kit so that you could identify parts.

(Palmetto state armory does this with their lower receiver parts kit and it is invaluable when you first start out building AR lowers)


You can't even find a part number or sizing info for the clip on any of Dillon's documentation.
Nor can you find them on their web site.
How many ways can they drop the ball?

As things stand I don't know what at least half of the parts in the master parts kit are! 
Even if they had the decapping/sizing spring in the kit, it would be difficult to identify it because the original is lost!

They seem to be putting them in the kits for the super 1050 these days.
But them not having a list of what is in the parts kit caused me not to identify it and created a whole slew of 

other issues including ordering c-clips rather than e-clips to fix it and losing the spring!

Some days you just can not win.
