Help! Need Replacement Hotend Assembly!

I can't find a new "Prusa V6 HotEnd (MK2)" assembly anywhere in the USA.

All of the eBay stores, E3D's website, and Prusa all ship from Europe.

Paying for international air shipping is unacceptable, this is just a hobby.

I need a replacement hotend ASAP, are there any that ship from the USA?

Thanks in advance for the help!

Both of these sell genuine parts.  

Filastruder - absolutely.  Grade A service and quick to ship.  From near Atlanta, GA.  

Printed Soldier - absolutely.  Grade A service and very knowledgible to deal with.  Never had an issue with any orders.  One defective product that was replaced in 72 hours.  

Filament one - Probably the best service of them all.

Thanks Chuck!

It turns out I had an old MMU1 kit laying around,

which apparently comes with a whole new hotend for some reason.

Whew!  Used-up an entire year's luck in one day!

A lot of printers come with an extra hotend.  Prusa does not.  I am glad you found one.  I would still buy one.

Here are my options.  Can i trust these guys to sell genuine parts?  Which one do you think is the best purchase?  The cheapest?  Haha.  ^_^

 

Filastruder, Ships From USA, $80 part + $4 shipping

https://www.filastruder.com/collections/prusa-specific/products/prusa-specific-e3d-v6-hotend-mk2-mk3?variant=32587811749959

 

Printed Solid, Ships From USA, $74 part + Free shipping

https://www.printedsolid.com/collections/prusa/products/e3d-12v-prusa-mk2-v6-hot-end-kit

 

E3D, Ships From Europe, $50 part + $15 shipping

https://e3d-online.com/products/prusa-v6-hotend?variant=34172334964795

 

Honestly, probably will just buy from E3D and suck-it-up and wait for it.
