Safari catch rubber gasket thingy

Post by mjknight71 » Wed Sep 25, 2019 2:13 pm

Who sells the rubber under the safari catches, between frame and catch?

I see them on diagrams but cannot find them for sale C&C, AHSchofield etc...or do I make some out of thin rubber sheet?

:D

No where seems to sell them, just make some, should be easy!
