    I'm a hobbyist and have a PM 1340GT with VFD, DRO and proximity stop. It's plenty large enough to do any gunsmith work.

    I have one of the CPS units and a Century21 hand tool. The CPS unit is very, very nice. Working it is quick and smooth and be done with one hand leaving the other free to simply add/remove a case.
