Studio Projects mic discussion

The Studio Projects mics are a bit interesting to me because they're relatively low cost. So for people who have used them I have a couple questions.

Anybody know where you can buy the CS5 if it's still available? I'm pretty sure it's been discontinued but I'd love to get my hands on a couple (if not more, depending on their price, if they were still available for the $300 or so they were a few years ago I'd easily grab a few).

The B1 and B3 are still in production I know. My understanding is that they use the 797 K67 capsule which has a broad boost like the TLM103 (but at 5 dB instead of roughly 4 dB, according to Recording Hacks' charts), so are those mics brighter than the other Chinese K67 utilizing mics with the weaker attenuation and improperly biased FET like the V67G, iSK BM-600? I like the sound of those two, but the B3's capsule and flat circuit lead me to believe it's similar to the Behringer B2 Pro which I didn't exactly like.

And is their C4 MKII SDC any good (they seem to go on eBay for under $400/pair with all 3 capsules)? Or should I just stick to my Little Gems for Omni, and my MK-012s for hyper cardioid (also have the iSK Pearls for cardioid)? The intriguing thing is the SP C4 is advertised as being really flat, but my matched MK-012 hyper capsules are also pretty flat, with their presence boost in the high end being 2 dB on one, and 3 dB on the other, if I'm reading the plot right.

Just looked and saw this. Don’t see them come up very often. I got one used a year or so ago, love it, best bang for the buck around. I’d buy it myself but am in plenty of hot water with my better half at the moment.
