Good, but not greatI love the idea of quick change outs with the dies and blocks, but there are a few disappointing parts. One issue I keep having is the brass set screw won’t stay tight on my sizing dies. The brass is too soft and will loosen over time. I understand the reason it’s brass, but it is frustrating to have it come loose. That is my most important step. Too loose and the round won’t chamber and too tight and my groups grow.
I will be finding a steel set screw to lock my dies in place. I know it will damage the threads on my die, but I don’t need to adjust more than once. It would be better if there was room to use the locking nut the dies come with, but the channel is too narrow.
The other improvement I’d like to see is on the retainer for the die block. It is a recessed Allen screw and is a bit of a pain to loosen and tighten. A spring loaded detent or something easy to turn would be great to have.
All that being said, when the die stays put, the brass comes out perfectly every time.
I have managed some very nice consistent loads that shoot amazing using this press. Very close to being everything I wanted, but fell a little short.

Great Single stage co-axial pressI've been using this press since it came out and really enjoy it. The light is great and there is plenty of leverage and room to resize large cases. I've also had really good run-out on bullet seating. All in all a solid press with a lot of features at a reasonable price. I did make one modification. I machined one of the included lock rings down to use as a spacer so that I can use the lock rings I already had. I see that another reviewer did something similar with a collar spacer. I would recommend doing something like this if you buy this press.

Incredibly well made coaxial pressThe Frankford m press is every bit as good as my Forster Co-Ax and in some ways better. Meaning: I do not need to change shell jaws to go from 338 Lapua to 308 or any other cartridge for that matter it mounts on top the bench not hanging over the side the built in light gets A plus the die blocks are not a big issue with me(but with a simple coller spacer under the die ring you can use the rings that comes with your die set) ( sorry Frankford) the press operates very smoothly with incredible leverage making sizing even the largest cases effortless. It is made of cast iron and steel not aluminum and plastic so it dose weigh around 20 pounds. All in all in my humble opinion they hit a home run with this one.

Pretty niceAfter unboxing, the quality seems pretty solid. I have no doubt it is strong enough and as durable as the Forster competitor. The Forster is a hair smoother. The shell holder on mine is awesome but has a slight issue not centering and holding the shell vertical enough to fall centered under the die. Every once in a while the shell hits the underside of the die instead of going into the die because it has a slight angle to it. This may fix itself when I use it more/smooths out. The free floating bushings floats a lot. By this I mean there is even a slight vertical float. It may be perfectly consistent but I'm just not used to it and didn't see it in the ultimate reloaded unboxing review. Again, I think my issues will only get better once the springs smoothen out. I love the light and the size of the press. It is nice not taking up space below the bench. The action actually feel really good. I have used the Forster co-ax and think that if the shell holder smoothness out/is resolved, than this is a better press. I don't like the priming system on the Forster, therefore, this one not having a priming system doesn't bother me one bit, as I hand prime all my cases.
