    This press is very similar to the Spartan press; both are sturdy C frame presses and use standard dies. A used one in the $35-50 range is a good buy.

    What did you want to know about it in particular?

    Red pad is the spent primer catcher bin. It goes on around the base of the press and doesn't work worth a darn, but it is better than nothing. I have yet to find a primer catcher that actually works 100% of the time on any single stage/turret press.
