    Forster makes 'em. Midsouth Shooters Supply wants $25.17US each. Currently on back order though.
    Direct from Forster might be better. $36 each though. Also on back order.
    Where you are matters. There's a $30 dollar US “base rate” for shipping/packaging if you order direct vs a local distributor if you're not Stateside

    There is no requirement for a .070" gauge. All you need is a .064" and a .074" gauge. Save yourself $36 and the postage.

    Be sure the gages are .074 for the no go, as I remember it most of the U.S. gauge makers do not make a no go in .074 . The one you will most likely get will be too small .

    Hey mate, I had a bit of a dilemma with this earlier in the year and ended getting them custom from Border Ballistics Technology (BBT) in Scotland. I am very happy to have bought them and will recommend them to anyone.

    I think the .067 is a Vickers MMG No-Go gauge if memory serves.

    Brian is right - in a roundabout way....... If my old memory of the gun serves me correctly, the .067" (or was it .070?) gauge is a reject gauge for the Vickers extractor slipway. The CHS reject is still .074" I know that you're going to ask how the xxxx the .074" CHS reject gauge would slip down the extractor slip-way if the reject was .067" That's because the Vickers .074" CHS reject gauge didn't have sides to the rim part on it. Always a bit of a chore to check and adjust. But luckily, they just never seemed to need any adjustment once both locks were set up to start with.

    Always fascinates me, all this kerfluffle over an object that can be turned up in a lathe in 15mins.
