Station 1 locator is "popping a wheelie"

So when I pull down on the handle and the case insert slide moves back my station 1 locator tips up. It doesn't lay flat and then is pushed into the shellplate and jams everything up. I've removed the case insert slide and cleaned under it. I cleaned the locator and greased it, but can't seem to remedy. When I reinstall the locator it doesn't look like it is laying in there flat. Could it possibly have bent? Advise.

Broken, bent, or something under it that you missed. I broke one fairly easy and Dillon replaced it.

RE: Station 1 locator is "popping a wheelie"

Well, mystery solved and Gary says I may be a first. I started to look at the locator close thinking I could see a bend in it. Suddenly, I wondered if that small hole directly behind the #2 was always there. Nope. I think I somehow punched a hole in the locator with the depriming pin. And, of course, the locator bent a bit following that incident. In January I had the indexer ring break and could never figure out how/why that happened. Now wondering if these two incidents are connected...
