Looking for #6 single slip in C100

Does anybody know where I can find a HO scale Code 100 #6 single slip switch?

Thanks, Dan

I don't think there has been a single slip switch  made.  You may have to modify a double slip switch or make your own.

Single slips are also available in Code 83.

I have several, Walthers/Shinohara made them for decades in both code 100 and code 83.

As for what might be available right now, that is a different question, PECO may be the only current maker?

But the PECO is sharp, effectively a #4.

I've looked at the Peco and it's not a #6.  It has a frog angle of 12 degrees whereas a #6 should have a frog angle of 9.5 degrees.

All I've found in my searching are Code 100 Double Slips by Shinohara.

I remember then from way back, like in the 70's, before Wathers contracted with them for the code 83 line. I worked in the business back then. And I have code 83 singles Walthers branded from about 8 years ago. After Walthers contracted them for the code 83 line, the code 100 products never seemed as "available". I will check some of my resources.
