There is a common misconception regarding the Ritchie CD-50 line of waterers. They're actually not a model number at all, but the paint process the factory used when they produced metal units.
If you have a Ritchie metal unit that still says CD-50 on the label, chances are that you have one of three units...all of which most parts are still available.
