Jack Bodenmann can make one for you if you can't track one down.

I have a few reflectors in stock.
I am having more made.
A possible vendor quoted me only $14,000.00 to modify my tooling to fit their machine.
They quoted me only $75.00 per reflector if I purchased 100 parts.
Needless to say I have found a more cooperative vendor
I am also working on a Mars Light.
All for now.

Can anyone say greed?

Many shops control their workload by bidding high on jobs they don't care for. If other RFQ's result in the same response, and they happen to be the low high bid, they make a killing. Sounds to me like you found one of them.

I ended up making my own after not being able to find anything available in 2" diameter.. These are made from copper sheet after several annealings..
I made the male/female dies, and used a Harbor Freight press to form them.. Once the rear boss was soldered on, they were sent out to be chrome plated..
