The DAA Primer Pickup Tubes are made of the highest quality aluminum, produced using custom-made extrusion tools and tightly controlled for accuracy and finish. Close attention is paid to the consistency of the internal and external chamfering to ensure optimal feeding. The matt-finish anodizing makes identifying the primer size immediate, while giving these tubes a striking attractive look. Blue Anodized pipe and end pieces for LARGE Primers, Red for SMALL.
Much testing and development went into the plastic pickup and drop ends of these tubes.
The Pick-up end is engineered to provide a more ergonomic shape, making it much more comfortable to grip in one’s hand. A very noticeable improvement for those loading many tubes in one session. The wider, larger finger-support area, with its smooth support ring, prevents hand fatigue and cramping, as you do not need to close your fingers as tightly, like you do with other tubes.
The tip was redesigned as well, and includes two “teeth” (not one, as others do). Carefully designed deep slots provide just the right amount of flexibility. The dual teeth work in union to pick up the primer horizontally while creating just enough pressure to ensure a firm grip on the primer while they are picked up.
Both the Pickup and drop ends are made of translucent material making it easy to see the primers as they slide through the pipe ends. This is particularly handy when emptying the tube into your press, as you can easily see when they are all through.
These end pieces slide onto the tubes with a firm fit to ensure they do not come off accidently.
When assembling your tubes, make sure you press the ends all the way down onto the pipe, as leaving a gap can create a functional issue.
