Um..ok.. Not sure why that would be on a small plate like this but nevermind then. I do have a couple feet of the stock. Maybe I'll see if Ken is interested.

If you have the stock then it isn't.... buying the stock is a whole other thing. Brass right now is about double the cost of aluminum. Thin or not brass is costly compared to everything else.

True, almost always the case but on a part like this it's just 4" or so of some flat bar stock. The material cost for 6061 would be maybe $.50 range and brass somewhere around $1.50. Add in anodizing cost for a finished part AL and I think it would actually be more expensive.

6 feet of .75" .25" thick..... Brass alloy 360 - $57.82.
6 feet of .75" .25" thick..... Alum alloy 6061 - $12.69.

Not cost productive at all. Any way... I made one of these in aluminum tonight, but you would need a bigger lug on your hammer.

Wow, you're getting bent over on brass prices. You can order that stock online for like $34. You don't need it to be that wide or thick though which would also drop cost a bit. .25 x .50 stock is $23 for 6 feet and I believe you can get away with thinner stock as well.

I say that because I've had plates made by several different folks and the nicest by far was also the smallest. It was slightly wider than the cocker frame and was very thin in the middle. It looked a lot nicer with less material protruding out and required a lot less messing around with the sear height. The entire thing was just a bit wider than the front part of yours.

I do like your idea of following the cocker frame profile though... hmm...

Don't have this gun anymore so I can't measure it but here it is. Little long in front but outside of that it blended right in. Look how thin that thing is

Which alloy on the brass though.... most "unmarked" grades machine poorly, hell low end aluminum machines like garbage. Which leads to a lot more off machine finishing time.

Alloy 360, "free machining" as its called. Machined like butter and with the right speed/feeds you do not even need to de-burr it. Most others tend to be gummy and clog up tooling. But that material tends to be the most absurdly priced.

Even this adapter plate I made I used low end 2024 grade aluminum because I had it laying around, and it machined poorly I spend a lot of time with a file getting it right.

Whats the purpose of the long rant? Use the right materials first and worry about the price later other wise it could actually cost more.

Nothing against the thin design, but it looks like an after thought less like a product.. but since I had exactly one person PM me about a spacer...... I'm not pursuing it as a product as there just isn't any money to be made for the time I would spend making them.

360 brass

IMHO, the thin plate was the least of an afterthought and the most well designed of all the ones I've owned. I guess another "problem" is that all frames are not the same. I think the thin one I had was actually designed for an old cocker / mag frame where the sides don't flare out. Hard to say wha

Like most aftermarket sheridan parts they're not in high demand but there's generally an intermittent and steady demand. I'd guess maybe a dozen in a year. I did discuss having these made with someone else a while back who had a neat idea for a different design. I didn't pursue it due to low demand as well.

Do note while the OP found one and you only had one person hit you up directly, I asked for a price on half a dozen in brass. Mostly just to keep a part on the market vs. being a money making endeavor.
