Google "Panatime" and also "Crown & Buckle" - they have great stuff. I bought (stocked up) all my NATO strap hardware at C&B, but I used to buy all of my Pre-V and thumbnail buckles at Panatime. I have been using a bunch of them for the past 6-7 years on daily straps, and haven't had an issue. I wouldn't hesitate to buy from either. Hope this helps! Edit: I don't know what you're expecting to pay, but $10-20 for a *quality* buckle is the going rate (and has been). You can try your hand at making your own, as I know some have done in the past, but that's why a lot of strapmakers offer their work with the choice of adding a buckle.
