    I gave up all hope of getting one of the CMP guns, after I received my random number of nearly 19,000. Then I found this one on Empire Arms for a price very competitive with CMP, rolled the dice, and...

    Got plenty of time - retired!

    The only 'time' investment is the initial setting up of the RCBS decapper, finding the best depth and angle for the pin. Once that is tweaked, just pop away.

    M1917 Mystery Receiver

    Because I have a 1918 Eddystone, a friend of mine showed me his MODEL OF 1917, and asked me to explain the receiver. I didn't know what to say.
    First time I ever saw anything like this.
