anyone familiar witht his product?
the olympic 209 primer pistol. Is it reliable? A good buy at 60 bucks or should I spend more than twice that for the alpha?

Last pistol was an olympic...it did not make it to six months. Cylinder lost sinc with the hammer and would not rotate correctly...

When I was looking for one the NEF was unavailable. I picked up a Kimar and it has been good. It is heavy and on the bulky side, but has work flawlessly. I have not heard too much good about Olympic.

Years ago I had an Olympic 209 pistol. It fell out of my pocket when I was walking back from throwing. I knew whereabouts it must have fallen out but I didn't think it was worth the walk back to pick it up. Really was a POS.

so is the ALPHA the only concensus good 209 primer pistol then?

We've put about 3000 rounds through our olympic, and it has been great. The only thing I'm not crazy about is that the cylinder rotates freely, but it hasn't been a real problem. I'd buy another...
