Joint Identification?

Can anyone identify these joints? I need to order new barrels to build new links. They are at least 5 years old and I cannot match them up with anything currently available.

The bolt hole is 9/16". The complete width of the ball is 2.625". There is a small socket head hex set screw that threads in from outside the barrel to secure the lock ring. The barrel has a snap ring opposite the lock ring. Zinc coating.

The 1.25 threaded shaft joints are identical minus the snap ring.

Thanks!

They look similar to a Summit Machine flex joint. Is there a small stamping on the 6 prong lock ring?

The lock ring is unstamped and clean. I haven't separated the joint yet. Maybe a branded marking inside...
I appreciate the help!

I don't know if they all have a marking, just a pattern I've noticed. Though it does look like the orientation between the grease zerk and set screw is the same between what I linked and yours, I'm thinking those are the ones.

I was going to say Rubicon Express joints but from my Google search they have 4 prongs not 6...
