68 Carbine Hopper Elbow - any idea where I can get one?

Asking the M. Carter Brown Community upon the recommendation of PBNation.com:

I am desperately looking for one of these for an old 68 Carbine I'd like to bring out of retirement:



Links to the parts:
Hopper Elbow - Plastic [68-Carbine] CA-E P

Hopper Elbow - Metal [68-Carbine] CA-E M

I've emailed Tippmann directly and they have said they no longer have any of them in stock.

I'd be happy to pay a reasonable price for a new or used functioning elbow! Any idea where I can get one? If you have one, please feel free to send me a PM!

I'm bumping this because I'm trying to get one myself to get an old baby back up and running.

Any tips would be great!

I had success by checking at an old field that had been around awhile. Like most old Tippmanns it was a popular rental gun in its time, so it's possible to find a field with a couple odd spare parts lying around (bless those hoarders!). I got ridiculously lucky and found the metal one on try #2. Oddly it was sorta the same place where I bought the gun to begin with.

It is a bear of a part to find, though. I think the plastic ones snapped a lot, necessitating the metal version. To top it off, if you're going to lose any one Carbine part, it'll be this elbow every time, so a large percentage of rebuilders working on a Carbine project need this unique part.

Old necropost, but if anyone out there is looking for them:
Tippmann upgrades

They also have the plastic ones, but as long as they're available go for the metal version.
