Default Made in USA Kobalt metric impact sockets

Does anybody have a lead on where I can find these? I have an SAE set and would love to find a metric set to match. Hopefully somebody has some info!

I'm not sure if Cripe Distributing has any left. At one time Cripe had both the Williams made versions and the later Armstrong made versions of Kobalt. I'd try to find the Williams made version. They're much nicer.

Williams USA sockets are the same. I have the Kobalt SAE deep and shallow metric sets Cripe sold, and filled out the missing sets with Williams USA, identical besides the stampings.

They have the SAE deep sets still, metric shallow I had to email them about to grab one of the few sets they had left.

Thanks for the tips guys. Unfortunately I'm looking for deep metric sockets I should've cleared that up. I bought my Sae set from Cripe

You'll be in for a long hunt if you hold out for a matching Kobalt labeled set, plenty of folks on here have looked, and there are definitely no NOS sets available like the ones Cripe has.

These Williams MS-12-13H are the same sockets, but Toolsdelivered is currently out of stock:

Yeah I kinda figured as much. I really like them so far so it sucks I can't find a matching set.
