    Depends how desperate you are, and whether you must have a new one.

    Kenmar Camera lists a used Horseman 2x3/6x9 holder, though it's a bit pricey:

    www.kenmarcamera.com/horseman%20used.html

    B&H is showing a Wista 2x3/6x9 holder in its used equipment section:

    If you're willing to use a Graphic rollholder, KEH often has some in stock:

    You can also check for a new or used Arca Swiss 6x9 rollfilm holder for the small 6x9 Arca Swiss view camera . they are identical to the Horseman 6x9 baby-graflock holders.

    If you have difficulty to locate a street-shop or mail-order shop in Europe I can help you, I have several addresses in France, in the UK and in Germany where you can find what you need either a Horseman ou an Arca Swiss (contact me off-list).

    sourcing a horseman 2x3/6x9 rollfilm back

    thanks for all your help! i have found 3 or 4 places with reasonable lf stock in the uk and have located a linhof 2x3/6x9 at a good price, i assume that it will fit as the horseman/arca.

    given the limited availibility of such products, certainly here in spain, i wonder if compiling a list of suppliers of lf film and equipment here on the forum may be a useful resource?

    Adrian, the Linhof 2x3 backs are not Graflok-standard - they'll only fit Linhof 2x3 cameras.

    Adrian, late seeing this. Both Arpi and Casanova pro in barcelona had these in stock two weeks ago. Arpi had a couple secondhand in box...
