Where to get four-bar stirrup irons?

So I want to get a pair of traditional four bar stirrup irons for my new Aussie saddle. We'll be using endurance stirrups when we trail ride (hello, comfy!), but when we school in the arena, I don't want to use those because they feel really unwieldy and clumsy to me. The problem is, I don't really want to pay $40 + shipping for a pair of stirrups (price from the Australian Stock Saddle Company website, which is the only place I've been able to find them...which isn't saying much 'cuz I can't use search engines on my computer).

So, does anyone know where I can get a pair of four-bar stirrup irons for cheap(er)?

For reference, they are the 11th pair of stirrups down on this page: Stirrups

Also, I tried eBay, but I must be eBay-illiterate or search words-illiterate 'cuz I came up with nada! Lol If someone can find some one eBay, post the link, please!

That is about how expensive they are here in Aus, so I will doubt you'll find anything much cheaper there. They are heavy duty stirrups and take a lot of metal to manufacture!

Hrm, I was afraid of that. Oh, well. I guess we can use a pair of English stirrup irons in the meantime, yeah?

You can use anything! I prefer either my four bar irons or my padded endurance ones, but that is just because I like the wider footbed!
