Lindy;

Very difficult to find original. Few and far between.

Rich Daniels in CT. can make you one. He is  "Barreltester"  on this forum.

Good luck

Thanks Kenn
I have a new one ordered, But it's going pretty slow out there. Was hoping someone had a used one they would part with.
I'm considering modifying a 380 plate to fit 9 mm. or just machine a plate for myself. I have a mill.


Good Shooting

You would likely be better off finding someone to laser you a blank and then finish machine. You could wire them and machine too.

You will likely need to machine, surface grind, heat treat, and post heat treat grind. A2 will be the cheapest of the tool steels to use. I would likely use 01, good fit for the application.

I am on the hunt for tooling as well. At this point I am thinking of just tooling up and making it. Have full scale machine shop and lasers.

Gentlemen

We still produce new shell plates and dies at Star Machine Works.   I have sold quite a few 9MM shell plates, Die Sets and 9MM machines this year.   With the ammunition shortage, everyone who said 9MM was too inexpensive to bother reloading suddenly wanted to reload 9MM, so we sold out.  Got it back in stock and sold out again.  We will have it back in stock again at some point and it may very well sell out again.  I have a number of backorders already.

We also produce the rest of the calibers produced by Star and have a number of them in stock, but it's been tough keeping anything in stock this year.

I have a new 9mm Star shell plate and new Star 9mm 4 die set and I cannot part with them. I was going to shoot 9mm in USPSA but stayed with 38 super comp.
