    As trick says. Also check grafs and cabelas. I would check them daily as they don't sit long. Great press by the way.

    My understanding is they only run them a couple of times per year. I've seen them go on eBay for over $400.00 because they are so hard to get.

    I got one at Gun Stop but they are out. eBay and/or classifieds like this website are your best bet unless you want to pay Forster $440.00. You can get one directly from Forster if you want it bad enough, http://www.forsterproducts.com/store.asp?pid=24822

    go to sinclar or brownells.
    Use their site or their 800 number they should be able to put you on their list. At $299.99 you cant go wrong

    They are a very nice reloading press.

    If I had not already had a RCBS press I bought 22 years ago I would definitely buy one.

    the wait shouldn't be all that bad now that Forster has retooled their machinery. Being as Sinclair and Brownells are the same outfit now, they also have major buying power.

    Did you call Forster?

    When I spoke with them at the SHOT Show this past January I found out that they are very, very nice people. I would not be surprised if they told you when the next batch was being built if you asked.

    Will call them, lets see what will they say, they sell them at $440, lil expensive, other retailers about $290.00, the problem all out of stock.

    like I said the Sinclair / Brownells group gets them in constantly, and I'd simply order in one from them. I'd not be afraid to commit to buying one from Fred Sinclair, as these guys are about as strait up as you'll ever see in the shooting industry.
