1911 primer

Another NASGW show announcement from Hornady is the Lock-N-Load 1911 Auto Primer Tube Filler. The pistol shaped device is a semi-auto method of loading trays of 100 primers into a tube designed for the Lock-N-Load loading press made by Hornady.

The red tool uses a pair of AAA batteries to power a small vibrating motor to load the tube with the primers. Hornady states that a single tray of primers (100) can be loaded in about 10-15 seconds. As a guy who has loaded tubes one primer at a time, this is certainly an interesting tool.

The MSRP is $72.08, and street prices are generally cheaper.

    I can see how something like this would come in handy but not in the shape of a 1911 which just seems gimicky to me. I think that some sort bench or table top unit with a larger hopper would be much more useful than this little handheld unit.

    Every time they say "1911 Auto Primer Tube Filler" I just think of "wacky flailing inflatable tube man".
