They're pretty awful pickups, why would you want them?
I think ebay might be your only option.

You're wrong on both counts. PRS sells pickups direct to customers in the US. Anywhere else and you can just order them through a PRS dealer.

I may have been wrong about the places to buy, but there are faaaar better pickups than the dragons.

That depends entirely on what you want them for. For some things, with the right amp, they excel. I'm sure you'll agree there is no one best pickup. Oddly enough, the Lace Sensors frequently get panned in reviews. On the other hand, I frequently get people asking me what the heck I did to my Strat that is so equipped to make it sound so good. It's just a matter of what is played with them and how the amp is adjusted to take advantage of them. I wouldn't play the same music on my Kinman-equipped Strat. Same thing with the Dragon II. BTW, I have Dragon I pups in my PRS.

Exactly- PRSi seem to greatly improve after pickup changes. I had the same issue before I changed the gibson pickups in my LP- it's easy to think your pickups are great because the guitar they're in is so good. I don't mean your opinion is invalid, it's just that in my experience the Dragon pickups have been fairly mediocre in comparison to a good aftermarket set.

Okay, fair enough. What would you suggest as an alternative?

If you want to keep the nice twang in the bridge, a Rio grande tallboy is good. I know the JB gets slagged on this board all the time, but goddamn do they sound nice too- and they keep the PRS bridge flavor. Pearly gates for a lower output greasy southern rock tone.

Any PAF copy in the neck is good- WCR, WB, etc. Alnico II pro would probably sound even better but I haven't got the chance to try one.

For a calibrated set, the WCR crossroads is cool but loses a bit of the PRS magic in the bridge IMO. It's a warmer set but a bit throaty, so if you like the base tone I'd stay away.
