Oregon doesnt offer 24in chain in .050 gauge pre looped according the Oregon catalog. Stens offers Silver Streak and Carlton in .050 84 drive links for 24in bar.

I've seen 72LGX for $300/roll here and there but the others are more like $380
Bailey's is having a Christmas sale on Woodland Pro 30LP for $300 right now  3/8 X .050 X 100'

Since the Chinese bought up all the scrap steel in the world all steel prices are up .

It wasn't that long ago I bought .404 Oregon chisel for 24 cents a driver .It's nearly doubled .

Fact I just got a Baileys flyer and really didn't see many bargains except maybe that Woodland Pro  stuff which I really don't care for myself .72 driver  3/8" for 12.99 and 84 driver for 14.99 .both in 50 thou .

You can get loops any where as many drivers as you want .I think the last I bought was either 123 or128 drivers of .404 Oregon chisel and that dang thing cost me about 50 bucks and that sucks .

A local guy bought an old used 042 and it had a brand new 24" 404 Oregon chain loop on it.

I was thinking the B&C was worth a good bit of the $125 the guy paid for the old Stihl?

It ran good and the guy has been happy with it.

I'd buy the chain by the roll if I have chain breaker and chain riviter tools.
