Here's another version:

it seems like the important term is "overmolded" and "45323"

I think this is the key...... Schoeps DC Connector tip.

The M-tip adapter will power the VMS but it will not be a rock solid connection and slightest bump to the cable is likely to disrupt DC power temporarily.

So a perfect world solution might be to hack off the M-tip on that adapter and replace it with Schoeps' proprietary connector. From what I can see all Schoeps did was to add a rubber donut ring to the end of a M-tip to get it to seat correctly into the VMS' DC power pin on the front of the box.

The problem is that Redding says they don’t have any more of the tips.

i believe i got a couple somewhere. i ordered a few at one point and they only had one, and sent me that and put the rest of my oder down as backordered. months later i got a couple more in the mail and they refunded me for the 1-2 they didnt send me that i had originally ordered

I had a cable with one of the schoeps tips that I almost gave away since it sat in the YS so long.  Can't remember who eventually bought it.

Newark sells a compatible connector:

https://www.newark.com/lumberg/nes-1-g/plug-low-voltage-1-95mm/dp/97K6463?st=nes%201

Made by Lumberg, this connector is called NES 1 G. There is a plastic shroud around the barrel, but I suppose this can be cut away or if I read the drawing correct, it should slide into the casing. Even here in Germany they are a rare sight nowadays, most DC plugs and jacks are 5.5/2.1 or 5.5/2.5

Hope that helps.
