Frankford Arsenal FX-10 progressive press


Recommended Posts

I just got an email from FA announcing their new 10 station progressive press.  It looks very interesting.  I would have loved the dual de-capping station on my Mark 7 Evolution.

 

Designed by reloaders for reloaders, the Frankford Arsenal FX-10 is a 10 station automatic indexing reloading press purpose built from the ground up to be the ultimate progressive reloading press. At its core, the FX-10 features rigid steel construction, multiple ball bearings, and a proprietary 10 station, gear driven, rotating shell plate which all combine to virtually eliminate powder spillage and bullet tipping. The FX-10 offers innovative improvements like dual de-capping stations to prevent primer drawback, in-line primer pocket swaging capability (for both small and large primers), and the ability to run powder check and case trimming dies. The FX-10 includes a case actuated powder measure with a positive reset that guarantees you'll never have to worry about squib loads resulting from a sticking powder measure. When it's time to swap calibers, the FX-10's innovative design allows the user the ability to quickly and easily swap out tool heads and shell plates to reload anything from 9mm to 30-06 length cartridges. The FX-10 goes further and offers refined details like a roller handle, integrated LED light, and spring-loaded case locator buttons, which allow easy one-handed case feeding and lever operation, making the FX-10 exceptionally smooth and easy to operate. Compatible with our Frankford Arsenal Case Feeder and Bullet Feeder (sold separately), the FX-10 is the ultimate solution for progressive reloading.

Someone just ruined Dillon's day.

Someone just ruined Mark7's day. But I agree that if this thing is actually reliable and does what it says on the tin, it is going to take a huge bite out of the 750 and 1100 market share.

Competition is never a bad thing!  Just looking at pictures of it, kindof looks Mark7 knock-off-ish.  Looks like maybe some cast components which, if done and machined well would be ok. Being a Mark 7 owner (very early model and fairly in-expensively updated to current parts), the mark 7 exhibits very fine machining and engineering IMO.  This would undercut them in price by a bit. But rules of economics make me think there would be some compromises compared to Mark 7 in some way or another but by how much I could only guess.  That being said, it could easily be something I might want to add to the reloading room.

Can`t wait to hear all the comments from the first beta testers. Hope they`ve got lots of parts in stock to fix it. Frankfort has never known to be of that great of quality.

Thanks!  Is there a way to view this video in landscape mode?  I couldn't figure it out on Safari or Firefox.

Interesting, be a little easier to watch if you did not have to lay on your right side to watch it.   

Sorry posted from my phone and if you leave auto rotate off on a cell phone it shows in large screen.

you can go to the post above that and follow the link and instructions and watch it full screen landscape mode.
