Do I have any chance of finding an Adam Circuit shell?

Do I have any chance of finding an Adam Circuit shell?
I've been through a bundle of nasal pillow type masks over the years. Lately have been using either a swift fx or a nomask. The swift fx is great but it usually starts leaking somewhat during the night or towards morning. I guess my nares relax during the night. The nomask is great because I use the double mouth piece and it prevents the very occasional mouth breathing. Same problem/annoyance as the swift fx. Also I keep masks cinched up pretty tight and the nomask tubes are a bit of a problem and the plastic bits of the thing break after a good while. Way back when, I really liked my Adam Circuit. No leaks and pretty much indestructable.  I got the awesome headgear that someone was making for them but ... it was headgear and a good bit of it.

So I got the bright idea of fabricating a bracket to attach to the nomask mouth piece that holds my old Adam Circuit shell. Now I have an Adam Circuit shell on a nomask mouth piece. Cpap hose suspended overhead and attached directly to the shell with a swivel. Perfect!  The nomask mouth pieces are still replaceable if/when they break or the boil-n-bite stuff wears out but the Adam Circuit shell seems to have gone with the dinosaurs. Although it might be indestructable I'd really like to get a backup. Do I have a chance?

I would have to guess you're going to need a Google search for that answer. Maybe other AB members know about these products, but I have not heard about these myself.

Thanks! This looks promising. 
It says "manufactured by Lifesource, Inc.". I gather that Puritan Bennett is no longer making them and maybe sold the rights to Lifesource? Has anyone tried one of these? In particular, is the shell made to the same spec and material?
