650 Primer Punch-Does It Really Come Apart ?


Recommended Posts

Does the 650 primer punch really dissemble for cleaning ?

Dirt/dust gets into the fitting and wont let it re-seat fully-- causing the primer wheel to stick and not rotate easily.

I see cleaning one is mentioned here and there. I've tried spraying cleaner and working it in and out - no luck. I can get the c-clip and spring off with only two hands :-) But, I'm unable to get the pin out. Should I wack it with a hammer and punch ? Or does it simply just not come out , thus requiring a new assy ?

The old style that is pressed together is not particularly serviceable. Dillon will replace it with the newer style punch for you. As I understand it, the new style is more servicable. I'm curious as to whether or not we could take the old style ones with a little crud in them and drop them into an ultrasonic cleaner and let the sonic action help work the gunk out. Thoughts?

That's worked for me. I follow up with ultrasonic oiling, too, since the metal is left bare.

I have the same primer assembly and it does come apart. If you have a vize try putting it in the vice and squeeze till the primer punch is exposed and touch it up with a file.

And call Dillon they will send you a new one.

I've been using one of these:

Its a automotive door handle clip remover (it works good if you need to remove your door panels). Just press down on it with your left hand and grab the C-Clip with a pair of Needle nose pliers. Works like a charm. Reassembly the same.

Got the replacement from Dillon. No wonder folks say it comes apart and I couldnt figure out how. The "new" one has an alen head part that the original one I have didnt. I'll find out if it come apart after the next 6-7k and it needs cleaning.

C-Clip wasnt tough. I put it in a small vice, pressing the tip of the punch and the edge of the c-clip cup. The clip loosens and easy to get off and back on.
