Looking for the roll pin belt buckle for the pilot belt. Got some on order from MonCal but he's telling me it's going to be a 6 to 8 week wait and I was needing to have a pilot done before May. Any other sources for these belt buckles?

This is where I got the two I used. Both came in a little over a week.

I put an order for 10 of those, just so we had some in the continental US. I'll let you know how they look when I get them.

Thanks! I was looking at those, I wasn't sure how long they would take to get here. Guess I'll wait and see what they look like when you get you 10. Smile

The ones they had have a tarnished kinda greenish hue to them.

I think we're looking for them without the coloring.

I'll have to see if there's a good way to get that coloring off, or if there are any further venues to get them.

I got one on these and they look anodyzed. I just used a sanding sponge and it got rid of it all.

I ordered two of these last month from the same company and, like yours, they had a greenish tint when I got them. I had no clue where else to look for these so I just bought some silver powder coating and powder coated them. Here is what it looks like after it is powder coated silver...

As a matter of fact, I was wondering IF that buckle has the code number at the other side. Do you have a photo from the other side?

I do really appreciated that. That clarify the source of the buckle. FYI, I do believe that website belongs to a banned member. I do not know the reason for the banning, but be careful ok. Wink

The above quoted information is correct (as is the buckle). Go in with your eyes open.
