WTB - Forster Co-Ax Press

After reading as many articles online as I can find and watching some videos I have decided I'd like to get a Forster press. Only problem is my "Want" is larger than my pocketbook and a new press is way over my budget. So I'm hoping someone has one of these presses that they are no longer using or maybe never used.

Good luck -- I saw one on flea-Bay go for more than some places ask for a new one about a month ago.

They will pop up... you're a day late as I just sold mine yesterday for $230+shipping. I had a PM on another site in I believe 47 seconds saying that the person would be taking it. It only had 100rds loaded on it too!

They pop up, just keep your eyes peeled. I didn't need mine as it wasn't my go to anymore and I figured someone else could better use it. I got a deal on it, so I sold it at one as well.

Re: WTB - Forster Co-Ax Press

These press's hold their value, so if you find one for less than $200.00 be careful as it might have a problem.
I last three that sold on e-bay went from 225 to 255 for an older Bananza B1.
I think a new one is $265.00 at Midway.

Good Luck

Dave

Re: WTB - Forster Co-Ax Press

My press is not for sale, but when you get one, I really think you will enjoy it. I had only loaded on RCBS presses, and while they are decent presses, I must say my Forster is now my absolute "GO TO" press. Forster's may not be the best press in a benchrest situation, but for an all around press, they are great.... Bob.

Re: WTB - Forster Co-Ax Press

I love mine.

As a suggestion - you will probably want a "regular" press for pulling bullets as well as if you ever use the Magnum Collet Resizing die from Larry Willis. I picked up an inexpensive used second press for this and use it somewhat regularly. Sometimes you'll make the wrong load, or disassemble loads that you don't want or need anymore. The regular style press works better for this in my experience.

Re: WTB - Forster Co-Ax Press

This was not the kind of response I was expecting. People offering good, solid advise which gave me reason to rethink my purchase plan. For that I say, "Thanks guys". I appreciate the useful comments which helped me change my mind.

Looks like all the online sellers are out of stock. So I just placed a backorder with Sinclair, who had the best price, and will just wait until it shows up.
