    S&S lists them on their current site. $31.00/50. Lodgewood only shows the blue ones.

    Jackie has them (he acquired the molds). They are being produced in blue or grey now.

    [Yes, Jackie at Backcreek has them for $25 per 100. I just purchased them from him this past weekend.

    Is there a problem with the new Smith tubes? The lady sutler with the large booth (I forget her name) said that the newer Smith tubes in silver or blue have had such a high failure rate (tubes splitting) that she has pulled them from her shelves.

    I personally have thrown all of my new silver tubes in the trash. I had many split and crack after just 1 or 2 uses. I am glad to have saved my old black ones to use!

    black tubes

    Is anyone else having a problem with the black tubes being hard to put in the chamber and even harder to extract? It's an original Smith.

    Jackie V at Back Creek is MAKING them. Troubles with earlier ones.

    Buy them from him directly to be sure you're getting newer ones.

    He'll stand behind them
