    Setting up a new reloader, where have all the Forster co-ax presses gone?

    Midway - out of stock
    Midsouth - out of stock
    Graf and Sons -out of stock
    Natchez - out of stock
    Sinclair - out of stock

    I wish I would have grabbed another one when midway had them for $259.00 they are probably going to change them or something. Any ideas, who did I miss?

    Probably just need shelves replenished due to Christmas Rush.

    Update -

    Cabelas - back order

    I will ring forster in the morning however they are listing at $440 about $150 over street pricing.

    I saw a year old thread where someone was in same jamb a year ago. They appear listed on GunStop's site, but I would call to make sure they really have before online ordering.....gunstop reloading in Mn.

    I bought one from Grafs 2 weeks before Christmas and it was on "back order" at the time. Showed up 1 week after the rest of my order, and I still got it for Christmas.

    I'd suggest ordering one and seeing when it shows up.

    I'm feeling pretty lucky that mine came in from sinclair on the 10th. Must have been one of the last ones.

    Pretty disheartening watching Midway's prices go up every time I looked at their website.

    Try these guys.

    www.gunstop.com ,


    Click on monthly specials, you want to get on their mailing list, every 2 days he mails the specials, it pays to wait. Today the co-ax is 260.00 with free cover, a 15.00 buck option. On the 11th, it was 10% off all Forster products so the price would have been 240.00.
    Like I said, it pays to wait for the deals.

    I don't get here very often, but if you pm me with your email address I will send you the advertiment.

    Yes it is disheartening to see the price increase creeping in. I have been buying things I am not going to need for a while because of this. I bought one new press before Christmas because of the sale price but we are not seeing any sales now and as mentioned stock appears to be way down across the board, some dies as well. On the other hand I am glad to see our sport is alive and doing well.
