Default Bargman L300 replacement

Has anyone sourced a replacement for the Bargman L300 door latch? The inside plate on mine is literally falling apart. The internals work, albeit very sloppy, but the 2 halves won't stay tightened down. Got back from a trip last week and the thing almost fell to the ground! I have seen whole refurbished sets for $$$. Wondered if there is something updated that is better.

If your bolts tighten down you can try some locktite to keep them tight.

There is a company that had a black replacement, but I have no experience with it, there’s also a guy, I think out in California who rebuilds them. I think it’s his retirement plan, he’s probably making more money than he would leaving his money in the market. Those handles are some money now.

This lock claims to be an exact replacement for the L300.

I just replaced mine with a used unit from ebay because the outside handle was broken. The inside seemed fine. I am sure I could be convinced to part with it.

I bought a refurbished one from a gentleman named Jack Benson. He repairs/rebuilds them himself. The one I received looks and works like new.

Here's his email: gto1buf@yahoo.com

Good luck!

Just found a complete unit on ebay for a great price. I snatched it up. It is used, not refurbished. May require a little rehab but looks to be in good shape.I figure between the this one and the one I have, I can make a complete well functioning unit.

Tri mark makes a good replacement. The Bauer unit is Chinese junk.

I found a new one last year and paid a premium for it, so they do come up. The guy that that rebuilds them sounds like a good lead. They all have some slop in the inside handle, must be by design.

They show up on Ebay once in a while. I was high bidder at $150 for NOS with keys.
