    Do you mean Gun X? That's what you want, none better...

    I have Alfa and they hold up well and never miss a lick. I've had it for 2-3 years (can't remember) and shoot 1000-2000 primers a year out of it.

    Know people who have had the Alphas and they are about 50 / 50 as to whether they love 'em or hate 'em. For the money, buy a GunX! A quality product, made in USA and a lifetime warranty.

    I have an alpha and really like it. That being said, my next will be a Gun X simply because they are lighter and that makes a difference in your pocket in the field lol
