Where can I buy a custom order for ball latches for my A5?

I saw the 5 pack on Ebay and I was thinking of buying around 20 for spares? Is their any on-line store that will give me a good deal?

Ive made my own for years out of the proper thickness of gasket rubber. You can get big sheets of it at home depot or Harbor Freight for about the same price as a handful of latches.

If I can find the right stuff again I can make you some.

Very interesting. I'll look into it! Thanks for the suggestion! I'll be at Home Depot and I'll see what they have and go from there. The deciding factor will be the price for the sheet and time going into making the ball latch vs just buying and spending a few more bucks for pre-made ones. I'm all for saving cash though

You can make them in nothing flat with a razor blade. just use one real one as a template for the first one, cut it out and refine it afterwords, then start pumping them out.

if the hardware store has nothing, tippmann parts will discount the price depending on the number you buy. if you want a lot of them, get 15. any more and you won't get the option of first class shipping (very cheap; only costs 4.67 to ship 15 of them). much cheaper than the stuff you find on ebay. i've placed a few orders from them as well, so no problems there.
