Hard to find (everyone is looking for them) but as long as you have about 10K laying around it is feasible. That might get all 3.

I have seen the trollies hitting $5,500 lately. Skate rail if you can find one $7,500. Dont know about the .30 cradle but the .50 cradle is edging up to around $2750, for a decent one.

The 30 cal / 50 cal cradles are edging up in price, above a $1000

The non sat in a puddle of water for 6 decades, long tail 50 cal cradles, are rare and expensive now.
You do not ask the price, if you want it.

Im sorry, whats the "non" stand for?

Additionally, are there any other cradles that work with the trolleys? Id love to have originals but Im willing to work with temps until I can get them.

non was type oooo,,,, meant one.

There is a long tail cradle on Ebay.
Nasty pitting on cradle from sitting in a bog, for 60 years.
Attached ammo can, rusted through.
Other cradles will work.
Cradle list,,,,,,,,, buzz words
Long Tail cradle
30 / 50 cradle
M1917 cradle 30 cal only (1919a4 and 1917a1 water cooled) cradle
Current issue, but style was used in WW2 cradle, with spring balance for 50 caliber M2HB cradle.
Probably more.... but these are what you generally see.
