Default RCBS Partner priming arm?

So I mentioned here that I got a RCBS Partner from an old friend, but it didn't come with a priming arm (it was used, and he bought it at a garage sale).

I assumed the "RCBS Single Stage Press Universal Primer Arm 2" should work, as it says "Universal", but a reply from RCBS states "It is not compatible with the Partner Press. It will work on the RC I and II and the JR and Junior presses. Thanks for choosing RCBS" but neglected to state which one to get...

RCBS's site is pretty bad with missing pictures, extreme-minimalist descriptions, and compatibility-list omission.

Can someone shed some light on what to get for the RCBS Partner, as this is my 1st single-stage and I would like to use it?

Per: http://www.rcbs.com/downloads/instru...structions.pdf
It looks like RCBS part number 87418 for the entire assembly (87412 for the arm itself) , which returns ZERO results on RCBS's site...

Maybe I'll just order a new Partner... for ~$100 next month, but I really wanted to just use this one I already have, as I am not buying a hand-primer.

I think I found the part in some other country, but I can't really read "Yo-gur-Smor-gan": http://www.waffen-baumann.de/product...ner-press.html

I have two Partner presses and a Rock Chucker. I use a hand primer and so if you need a new priming arm for your Partner press, PM me and I will send you one.

Thank, but I would rather just buy one. The resell value of a press is dependent on being complete, I assume.

I am really just looking for a purchase-source, if anyone knows one.

I currently have another e-mail into them, but it was a reply to their reply, so I don't know if they check those...

I just checked my e-mail again, and "Just ordered that for you no charge" and my address is on the original e-mail, so I guess they are shipping one.

I think they just made a formerly-non-customer, a customer for life!

WOW! I really just wanted to buy the ~$15(?) part myself, since there was no MFR error at all.

Glad it worked out. RCBS has great CS. Your experience is why I choose them for equipment. They have always come through for me.

This priming arm assembly arrived yesterday, and in the same sealed package... came with 2 replacement Tinnerman retaining rings in case I desire to dismantle it for a thorough cleaning.

A+ RCBS, A+!

Yup.......they sent me a free priming tool too, even though I bought my press used. Good people.
