Some time ago I asked the members if they had a battery operated primer loader from Frankford Arsenal. Frankford Arsenal discontinued the item some time ago. Apparently a bunch of consumers had some problems getting them to work correctly. They did take a little sanding here and a burr removed there. Very efficient machine. You may have to run twice to see it dumped into the Dillon. Got me.
Is that what those are? I just tossed these in the trash last week.

Steve, I have the blue pistol grip with black and white drop tubes. Is there a difference in the black and blue pistol grips?
Never looked at the motor (yet). Had mine a while. Hope it keeps working for a loooooong time.

I got the black one in trade from a friend. Cost me a box of factory 9mm ammo. It's sitting in my safe as a spare. I haven't used it yet. Not sure if there is a difference. The handle is really just a darker blue.

I just sent Frankford Arsenal a message giving them reasons that they should start making these again. I think, from now on, I will do this every time I see a thread like this.
A thousand people have probably already done this, but maybe I'll be the one to push their decision over the edge.

Have you heard my conspiracy theory? I think Dillon pays Frankford to NOT make the Vibra Prime. To boost sales of the $350 RF100.

I mean seriously. Why wouldn't Frankford make a production run of 2,000 units every few years and sell the VP for $50? They would all sell, for a profit.
