Source for CHEAP P60 shells?

Hey all I’m aware of some of the awesome copper shells available around here, I’ve even got one for a 3×219b build, but I’d like to source some really cheap shells. Don’t care the material, aluminum is fine. They’d be for single-emitter builds and would prefer to use reflectors, but I could go with optics if needed. I’m wanting to buy several, like 6-10ish, so $40 copper shells are just out of the question. Any ideas?

They’re like $3 on fasttech. RMM may have them as well.

I tried mtnelectronics but didn’t see any listed there. I haven’t messaged Richard about it though. I didn’t even consider fasttech. I guess I just don’t do much business there, but I’ll certainly check that lead. Thanks!

How the crap did I miss that?! I found one on fasttech for 1.99, but the machining looks nicer on mtnelectronic’s part, assuming the photos are of the actual products of course.

Thanks again.

FastTech has had a proclivity for packing their springs loose inside the same packet as the reflector; result is loose parts scratching the reflector finish…
