Frustrated..What the H*ll did my authorized dealer sell me?

So I picked up a 2 year old 550B, having owned one years ago and wanting to start back into cowboy shooting. Had a shoot and needed a Large primer slide assembly fairly quick so drove 75 miles to my nearest dealer (and a small primer plunger thing since mine mysteriously snapped and sent it and the spring and cap flying). Anyways my authorized dealer didnt have the small primer thing and thats probably a good thing in hindsight. He did sell me the large primer slide assembly (or so I thought) its slightly longer maybe .75" than my small primer slide and is slightly thicker so there is no way it will work with my primer system. The primer plunger that goes under the cap that is spring loaded is about .25" longer than the one (that is now broken) on my small primer slide.

What the h*ll part did this guy sell me? Would be great if we could upload pics on this forum

Pretty darn fed up with this Dillon and the color blue at the moment.


75 miles of mountain driving to replace a $30 part aint happening, so screw going back to the wonderful authorized dealer who sold me the crap parts.

Going to call them on Monday and let them try to make this right before this thing goes on the classifieds in my town and my Redding turret goes back on the bench.

If it's thicker and larger, it sounds like you got a large powder bar. Or maybe a part for a different machine.

It sounds like a primer slide for an XL750. Please email us, and include your address. We'll mail you a replacement cup, punch and spring under warranty.

Good for you Dillon! Can't be much happier about customer service than that.
