View Full Version : VS- AS/2 Auto Sizer - Gattling Mag Sizer feeder - Rifle Cast Mod for AS/2

AS/2.
Sizing of casts must be one of the most boring, tedious jobs associated with reloading.
The AS/2 unit was born to try and rectify that problem. Originally designed for pistol casts, it now has the ability to handle Rifle casts up to the length of 308/240gn.

The AS/2 comes with 3 sized slides, small ~32Cal, Medium 36-38/9mm, and large 40-50SW.
The optional RM (rifle mod) allows any length cast .588 to 1.340 inclusive.

The AS/2 uses a Lee Challenger Press #90588 (not included) That only costs $65 or less.

In its standard form the AS/2 will take 25 casts in the feed tube (9mm for example) and size very quickly. Using the quick change feature of the Lee, it is possible to run a lot of casts through for several calibres.
For those who like running larger quantities of cast, a Gattling Mag was designed to compliment the AS/2.

Gattling Magazine.
The GM unit holds 250 9mm casts and is designed to sit on the top of the AS/2. It allows a high volume throughput of cast sizing. The GM has 8 feeding tubes.
Unlike other feeders on the market, you do NOT need to buy a GM per calibre!. The GM comes with two sets of inserts that allow calibre changes in seconds. In fact it is possible to load a mixture of 45acp and 38sp or 9mm or any other combination that suits your tastes. Simple swapping of Slides is done in seconds, and again with the lee quick change die system, you can change from one to another in around 30 seconds.

RM.

The Rifle Mod kit is a small simple addition that will allow long casts to function in the AS/2 unit. You can either build these yourself, or for a few bucks we can supply a kit ready made for you.

This unit was originally designed for my own use, I am not a huge business, just a old guy that enjoys his shooting hobby. There are now over 14 of these in use by members of cast
boolits. I build them in batches of 4-5. The reason this post is in Group Buys.

Here are the links to Videos on YouTube that show each of the above items in use, and more info.

GM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L0HBosRviGI
RM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L0HBosRviGI

As of the date on this post the prices are as follows:- AS/2 $325, GM $258, RM $30.
Freight for the AS/2 to anywhere in the US is $137, GM $89 and RM $8.

All are in USD$, Please use a converter for which ever country you live in.

Thank you for taking the time to read down to this point.

Good for you Mike!! glad you are in good health now!

Lets talk about getting a group buy together where you build 6 and have then shipped in one box, to a central location in the USA. That person can repack and send to individuals. Would you be interested and how much might that reduce shipping over the pond?

Thanks,

Chris

Several other have expressed interest and I shall add them to this post as the orders solidify.
If your name is NOT on this list, I dont know about your order!!
List above is a record to prove I know and have received your details and payment.
Production starts on receiving the first 6 orders and this run, with assistance I have organized, we are taking a max of 10.

I take payment via paypal because that is protected payment for you and for me.
Grem460@hotmail.com is the username to send it too.

Include freight with it, and if that changes I will wear the differance.

Cheers Mike.

Machined the new part for you , in fact even though we haven't reached the 6 batch point I have machined enough parts for all of them anyway. As i work slower than I used too I thought I would get a head start on this batch.

The 3 guys who have fronted up their payments have given me enough funds to get the materials ordered and the bigger stuff pre cut. So progress is being made.

PS Hatch can you move this thread back into the main active area please, that way we can reach more members with the info this GB is running again. Thanks muchly.

10 Press pin done and 10 sets of pivot areas. I had some new linkage parts sent from china to see how they compare to stuff I buy here in AU and to be honest I think they are better. Quality is good as AU stuff but I like the ball locking mech better.

I made that many Press pin sets because I am waiting for the steel to arrive, been told its this comming monday for the last bitz I need.

end of update..

Finally got the correct order of steel yesterday, I even printed out the order so they could read it clearly and they still got it wrong.
So i get to play today.. yipee!!

How you doing Squints? You get over the bump in the road? I **** hope so, I aint spending all this time building a unit for you , just so you can go off planet on me!!.

Units are 85% done, close to bead-blasting and painting now..
after thats done I assemble each one and test it kinda works. Then I beat on it with a hammer and bend and twist stuff so it kinda works.
After that I box em up and ship em out.

hi Mike
when I was in hospital they found 95% blockage and 90% they put a stent and I was fine . I had to wait a bit over a week in hospital then they put a second stent in , then that was when I had all the problems, they had to use the paddles on me twice what a burn I got on both sides of my chest brought to room fine then I flat lined and they had to use CPR on me to get it started again. They rang my wife to come up to Wollongong Hospital ( we live about 100kl south of Wollongong at Nowra) but all is fine now got home about a week later. On the Sunday after I shot 4 rounds of Wild Bunch , the Sunday after it was single action at Nowra I shot 6 sceneries then we travelled to Gunnedah shot the next Sunday weekend after we had 3 days of Pat Garrett I'm not letting a little heart attack stop me from doing what I like to doing as much , my wife wrote this I cannot spell very well

Yes I made 2 "spares" that will be completed once the sliding blacks are here and machined to suit each unit. Also the chineese are a bit slow with the ball linkages I ordered, but hey it will be done.
