Works well as a tube filler when you get the proper insert depth set on the fill tubes. Doesn't work as well as a regular flip tray for getting the primers properly oriented. Seems to be better built than many of the vibratory primer tube fillers on the market.

It works! I’ve tried other primer tube filling products for years. I even have a Dillon RF100. Nothing before has consistently worked with large primers. This works! My only complaint is the tubes that DA has for the PrimaFil are a little short. They barely hold 100 large pistol and only about 95 large rifle. Not a big deal just be nice if they were 1/2” longer.

I have had two other primer fillers the first one broke, The second one was a Franklin. That was just OK. The ergonomics were bad. Yes the pistol looking design was cute but it was difficult to properly seat the primer tube. Well I just got the DAA Primafil and easily loaded 1000 primers in minutes. I like that when the tube is inserted its locked in the Primafil. Also I can watch as the tube fills through the clear red cover. This is important for me because I've been buying bulk primers. I can easily see when the tube is full.

High quality and easy to use thank you for the great product

this works great with small primers . but it does not like Winchester large pistol primers works good with Federal though so get federal or check it before purchasing 1000's of primers

Had hang-ups with small primers at first. I found that if I set the bottom of the filler tube on a soft surface and put slight pressure to center the tube perfectly with the hole it worked great. Seems to deaden vibration at the tube where they drop almost completely eliminated hang-ups. The grid to turn primers over is a little coarse for the small size. Large size primers are a breeze.

I love all things DAA. I am a fan and have bought many items. All are high quality, well made, well thought out, and most have a nice instructional video by Sol. The latest purchase is the Primafill. First I bought the Rockford Arsenal. Could never get it to work right. It took longer to load 100 primers than the pick and peck method. Then I bought the Hornady. It worked about 60% of the time. Still got stuck primers 40% of the time. Now, I have a reliable primer fill - the Primafill.

I've been loading on two Dillon 650s for around 25 years. I quickly decided that I didn't want to use a flip tray and pick-up tubes, so I bought a Frankfort Arsenal Vibra Prime. The VP worked okay, but is pretty flimsy. Several months ago, I bought a Primer Fill. What a great improvement over the VP!! I've loaded around 20k primers now with the Primer Fill. Much sturdier, more efficient design, compared to the Vibra Prime. A friend has loaded over 80k primers on his Primer Fill and has yet to change the battery. I highly recommend the Primer Fill!

had a lot of primer fillers but this one fits the bill !! thanks again

You can't beat it! I've tried them all and can't find anything better. Fast accurate, I love it. So far I've only loaded the small primers. I loaded 10,000 small primers and I can't think of any way it could be improved.

Works great. Much faster way to fill primer tubes.

Bought this based on years of frustration using a Dillon primer tube filler regarding small primers. This thing works! Small effort needed. No more flipped primers getting loaded

Works great, almost flawlessly.
Double Alpha should make a primer tray that fits the internal dimensions of the DAA Primer Fill so one can invert the Primer Fill Unit into the primer tray and just flip it, problem solved. The current DAA Primer Tray (sold separately) will not fit the inside deminsions of the Primer Fill.
One you get the nack of controlling the unit, left to right and front to back when loading the primers into the primer tube, you can fill the tubes very fast. It's all practice, beats doing it by hand.
I see complaints about the primers flipping in the tray while loading a primer tube, simple fix to that problem. Just press down on the units lid with slight finger pressure and the primers will not flip over. I have noticed that the primers that flip do so while vibrating agains the large primer block piece directly opposit the small primer tube hole that you are filling. Pressing down on the cover of the DAA Primafill solves the problem.
When the primers get stuck while entering the primer tube use your case neck deburring tool to smooth it out. If the deburring wasn't the problem, do not tilt the unit so severely towards the primer tube you are filling hold it more level.

There are a number of things worth noting on the Primafill. First, this thing is robust! It is by no means a flimsy plastic product. It is assembled with Torx fasteners, they could have easily cut corners using pins or snap together construction. The switch is metal and the motor is powerful. The body is soft touch plastic making it easy to hold especially for my dry calloused hands. The magnetic gate for blocking the unused port is a novel idea and further shows the thought and care that went into the design of the product. In addition, it sits flat and stows easily on the bench whether in or out of the box in any orientation. This is a key factor for me, I despise an accessory that consumes excessive storage space.
Functionally it does what it is designed to do and it does it well. I hate the mundane task of filling primer tubes by hand, especially ten at once the Primafill does so in seconds even with the ‘sticky’ WSP & WSR primers.
Overall it is a great value especially when compared to the cheaper Asian made pistol grip products. I have zero regrets with spending a little more for a quality product.
Could it be better? Yes. Here are my recommendations for Primafill V2:
The soft touch surface is nice but it seems like every product I’ve owned over the years with this coating has degraded into a sticky mess. Admittedly most have been Asian made, I hope that doesn’t happen with the Primafill but consider alternatives like maybe molded in stippling similar to to that on Magpul grips. Secondly, it really needs some means of holding the cover on. How about a couple of tiny magnets in the lid? Finally, and this is a big one, do away with the washboard style of ribs and go with concentric circles like conventional primer trays. Maybe you have your reasons for doing it this way but the washboard orientation makes flipping frustrating at times. Maybe you need a combination so that the flow path works correctly, straight on the side where the full ports are and circular over the rest of the surface. Two shakes of my RCBS tray and all my primers are flipped. The Primafill takes several and can be a game a times. And one last gripe, would it break the bank to include a few 8mm tube caps with the product? I bought a bag of 100 from Amazon for less than 10USD. Not a deal breaker by any means but even two caps would have been handy to have to get started.
Finally, this being my first DAA product purchase I can say after using it and seeing what thought went into the design, I wouldn’t have any reservations about purchasing future DAA products.

It works very well with small pistol primers (cci and s&b), it takes only a few seconds to fill a tube. Practical and reliable, I’m very satisfied

This is a great primer tube filler. I did some practice fills with it to figure out how much you need to slant the tray to get the primers to feed in the Channel and down the tube.
The videos are a good place to start. It will feed them fast if you take your time and do not let the primers make a traffic jam. Think of it like a pencil stream of water you want to run in the hole.
All I can say is that it works great once you figure out what angle you need to hold the unit.

Got these for my primafill because the Dillon tubes weren’t working right; this tubes work perfectly and I like them being colored for identification; also bought the caps for them; would recommend!

I have had the Franklin vibra primes, old and new style, the Dillon and have sevrral pick-up tubes. This is the easiest I have ever used.
Be sure to watch the primers as they enter the tube as rarely they will flip over. I just stop and remove the tube and turn rhe primer over then continue.

Great Idea! Priced Right, but a couple of design issues.
1) Goes through batteries pretty quick
2) Small Pistol primers do get a little stuck at the drop hole, You have to pop on the lid
3) Primers can 'flip' with lid closed
4) the serrated base doesn't do a very good job of flipping all primers. Should have used the Lyman round flip tray specs for your internal floor pattern design.
Finally, I wish the lid 'locked' down, a simple snug fit would help.

The fillingprocess works good. But the primer flipping needs to be improved. (Same issue as shown in the video)
