I'm pretty sure it's a Weston, tho I think they have discontinued making the 20lb model in favor of the 15. They should still have parts available. RAY

Well this reply from Cabelas: "Thank you for getting back to me. I am terribly sorry, regrettably parts are no longer available CABELA'S COMMERCIAL GRADE STUFFER. I apologize for any disappointment or inconvenience this has caused you.
Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Sincerely,
Brandie B.

That's always been bass pro for ya. Cabelas went to SH!t when they got bought out. I avoid them both now

I'd call corporate and demand they to give you a new one. If you cant get one find someone to machine you a new pusher. You dont need that fancy valve. Just a hole with a valve and spring. It looks like I'll have to find a new o-ring. Mine is as old as the unit and still in great shape but i'm sure it wont last forever.

I think you can still buy the O-ring....or at least I saw a lot of them while looking for plunger head. I didn't drill down to make sure it's the right one. I hear ya about not needing to be fancy. The air bleeder on my old sausage-maker stuffer was just a bolt and a flat washer. I don't even think there was a spring involved.

I have feelers out for any locals that might want to try to build one with a 3D printer. I would turn one on my lathe from HDPE cutting board material but the raw material is minimum $40 and one f-up would be expensive.

Thanks for all the suggestions and help! I tried to cobble something since I was in the middle of 47# sausage batch. Sacrificed one of our kitchen cutting boards for it. Got a little further but still ended up putting about 20# of grind in the freezer until I get this fixed. Never done that before. Hopefully it will turn out down the line when I go to stuff it.

In the process of looking for parts for my 11lb cabela's unit, I found that they are weston. My unit is stamped "pragotrade" on the bottom. Pragotrade's name changed to weston in 2010. Hopefully this will help the next guy googling it.
