Check Sirius Rocketry. That is where I bought mine after getting my Mongoose.

I checked there, but just to be sure I just checked again. No luck.

Hadn't thought of trying the Canadian Vendors, actually I was only aware of Sunward before your post. Thanks.

Always forget that BMS has HP stuff. I "needed" a 55HJ nose cone also, so I'm trying to order from them, but the checkout isn't working (I'll call later).

I am looking for the tail clone aft closure (Hardware), not the Aeropack tail cone retainer. Thanks for looking into it though.

I know the difference. Here's the actual question I asked Robert:

My friend Dale Emery bought an Aerotech 54mm tailcone aft closure from you. Do you still have some? Do you have some for 75 as well? What kind of pricing?

I was confused by his reply then, looks like he got his wires crossed on the request. Those appear to be consistent with their part numbers for Aeropack retainers. Also, the black or silver option didn;t appear consistent with the hardware offering I am familiar with. I did then use a search of their website with the part number "AP54TC" and nothing came up.

I was surprised to hear they stock AT products at all. I didn't know (and it isn't on their website) that they stock any AT hardware. Again, thanks for looking into it though. I'll give them a call if I can't get a hold of Balsa Bill.

I agree; their part number appears to be the Aeropac retainer. I was surprised when Dale told me that he got his from AMWProX also because I would expect them only to be a competitor. I have written to Robert asking for verification or clarification. Maybe I misunderstood Dale about where he bought the aft closure. It's pretty nice though for a minimum diameter rocket.

Balsa Bill did indeed have one. Thanks for the suggestion.
