Old RL1050 primer bar return spring

Recommended Posts

After talking to Dillon tech support, I just installed the “new lever arm bracket” (part 13001) on my ancient RL 1050. It is the bracket on the magazine tube in the pic below.


It is much shorter than the original bracket (part 8121), which broke, and has no spring on the underside that on the early 1050s returns the primer bar to a forward position.


Any ideas? Right now as a temporary measure I wrapped a spare powder bar return spring around the slide actuating lever to move the primer bar forwards.

After talking to Dillon support again today, it seems like I need the extended bolt part 12486 that screws into the ratchet bracket. This moves the primer bar. My old press which is from the mid 80s did not have it and relied on the spring I mentioned.


That’s the theory 😀
