Does anyone know where to find an MPA F-Class front slider plate? It appears like MPA has discontinued them.

Just make one up of C-channel wouldn’t be too hard

Also if this isn’t a sneaky WTB ad you may want to remove it.
It’s not a sneaky post. Im hoping someone knows a source or something similar. Thanks for being a Good Samaritan though.

    I googled and didn’t see one for sale anywhere. If it was me I’d just go to. Metal supply ad get some channel with a thicker web, it you want the two points for reduced friction a drum sander would accomplish that in minutes.

    May not look as fancy, but would work.

    Yeah I might come up with something. I can’t believe no one makes a front bag rider that clamp via Arca.

    Delrin may be a good option and even easier to work with don’t need the tall side really and it’s slick, just need an adapter. Use a dado blade, sander, or step the fence over 1/8” repeatedly to make the two contact areas.

    I 3D printed one that slides onto the arca rail, it works really well. It's got 1 little 4mm screw at the front to lock it in place.
