Disable a Primer Feed 650

What is a good trick to disable primer feed on 650? I see switches on sale remove cam but is there a quick easy fix to stop primers?
Thanks

Rocky,
In the past I have just put a couple of real small washers under the arm that fits into the primer wheel. It raises up the are enough that it does not fit into the primer hole so it won't index.
Worked for me.

Unscrewing the cam that indexes the primer disk will also disable the primer feed. The cam has no adjustment so there is no risk of maladjustment.

I purchased the sliding modification for ease. It's an easy mod that doesn't require much more than 2 screws to be replaced and then it's just a matter of flipping the switch.

The "switch/slide" from a guy called Snowshooze on EBay works well. It's very easy to fit and operate. I consider this add on an essential upgrade to the 650.

I've seen a few other primer stop fixes and I'm not impressed with most of them.
