What is this?

I did a trade a while back for a Lyman turret press and some other stuff. Along with the other stuff which I could identify, I got this part which appears to be some sort of priming arm. Does anyone know anything about it? I'm just mainly curious. Thanks.

It is a 'priming arm' for a Dillon press - they come with two, one each for large and small primers. Appears to be for thier 550B model.

It is definitely a primer seater for a Dillon 550 or B press. Can't tell whether it is a large or small primer seater from your picture, but that's easy enough to determine. You could probably sell it on Ebay for a couple of bucks or better yet give it to a Dillon owner like me LOL! :)

Dang. Kinda looks like a thread bobbin and yarn winder for the 1903 Singer sewing machine. Don't ask how I know.:p

Dillon 550 priming arm looks to for small primers.

I put a large primer in it, so I know it's for large primers. I have no use for it, so in the order you requested it in this thread, you are welcome to it. Just paypal me $2.00 for shipping and I will mail it to you. PM if you really want it.

And thanks for identifying it for me. I guess the old guy was holding out on me since he didn't offer up the Dillion press.

Regards,
Jimfern
