    I have a 1st gen Universal, it's probably as good as the GI ones as most of it parts are surplus, the second and third gen give them all a bad rep!? don't know why they changed the design? and the parts are soft too! $1200 sound a little high to...

    The Dillon ring have had a 1" hex for some time now, I didn't think it was a good idea at the time?, but I grew to like very well, a 1" boxend wrench seems to get the job done better than the Dillon "Bench Wrench"? I havent had to put any lock nuts...
