Replacing old Bargman L300 entry lock with newer Trimark

The springs and rotating assembly were worn out on my old Bargman L300 lock, and when I bought the Class C, the keys were missing.

I would have to set the deadbolt inside, then climb out the cab to lock it.

New L300's ran $150+

Trimark and several others (AP 013-257) make L300 replacement locks, and they ran over $100.

I found that the common Trimark 60-1650 has the same cutout, latch bore, and backspacing as the old L300, so I bought one for $70.

I had to drill a new hole for the deadbolt and notch the frame for the taller strike plate, and it fit great! Pics to come.

Good luck with that Tri-mark

I suggest you take it apart..Take the Striker Bolt to a good metal smith and have him carve you one out of steel.....Just in case.

Thanks for the heads-up. I should be able to fab one.

What's the beta on the striker bolt, are they cast pot metal?
