Ah, thanks for saving me the trouble of digging out my own 6300.

The exact nylon standoffs might be a bit difficult, but the metal parts 
could easily be replaced with plain old threaded hex standoffs.  The 
original metal standoffs are press-fitted into place and my guess that 
they'll be difficult to find, even if you do own an appropriate press

The great thing is that the holes for both types are recessed on the 
bottom, so that getting a good mounting using a washer-head machine 
screw should be no problem. I've got bags of aluminum hex standoffs of 
various sizes and find them to be invaluable.  Jameco also offers a 
somewhat more limited selection.

Here's Mouser's 578 pages of standoff choices:


So maybe not original, but close enough functionally.
