I was on their site just looking for a few small items. Almost everything I clicked was out of stock. With no in stock dates posted. I was just wondering how the Hell they are keeping the lights on with nothing to sell. I know it's because most injection plastics come from China, don't see that problem rectifying itself anytime soon. I thought Lee made all their own stuff in the USA ? Must not have raw materials to do the injection molding.

They design and spec a lot of their own stuff, but sub out a lot of the production machining stuff. Those places might be backed up.

Just out of curiosity are any other press and parts manufacturers showing out of stock?

They are most likely selling everything to distributors. Last I knew the only thing lee does not make state side is the heating element for the casting pots.
I just received some warranty parts for a press Im working on.

Its a sign. Go blue.
I would , but I only load handgun and maybe a couple thousand a month. Both my favorite long guns are PCC in 9MM and .45 ACP. I can't see the capital outlay for all new equipment. If I was still a competitive shooter with large volume needs I would already be a Big Blue fan. Thanks.

Trival parts actually, the plastic square bushing that goes on the indexing rod, a couple of primer loading trays, 2 covers for the powder hopper, and one of the new powder bottle adapters, Nothin that can't wait till I get my fats ass down to Shooting Supply.

Shooting supply may not have the stock either. Check their ebay store or call. I needed a Lee 9mm mold and they were out, Lee was out, the big box online gun stores out, Amazon out. 3rd page on Google I found a site that had it in stock. Rough times for all aspects of the hobby. Good Luck!

With the exception of the bushing, I 3d print all of those parts
I'm pretty sure that the bushing can also be printed

As Trash Can Dan pointed out Titan Reloading is the first place I check when I need something from Lee. They are located in the same town in Wisconsin as the Lee factory, and seem to have better prices and availability than most places. I just checked and they have the Classic Cast turret press in stock and some pistol caliber dies, for instance. But on the flip side no four-hole turret plates or 9mm dies at the moment. They have been helpful to me on the phone (and have that delightful Wisconsin/Minnesota accent).

Natchezss, titan reloading, and Midwayusa usually have Lee common parts in stock.
