I stand corrected after doing some research regarding to part prices. The OEM's dot 5*, plain 5.5* and plus 8* connectors are on average $6.99 on several sites. The minus (OEM, mind you, and was once called 3.5*, but now 4.5*) is $24.99 across the board for some strange reason. Another forum said it is a Glock controlled part only for Glock armorers to obtain. Is this a money maker or what? I just don't understand the huge price difference. It's just a stamping no different from the other weight stamping's as far as having the tooling already set up for all of them. Probably one dedicated machine for each type, being mass produced all the time. I'll stick with what came in my G44. It's just a plinker. Anybody's input is appreciated. And no, I'm not going to spend $35 and over for an aftermarket.
