pBR322 primers

Once upon a time New England Biolabs sold clockwise and counterclockwise
primers for several cloning sites in pBR322.  I don't think they still do,
but you should never buy primers off the shelf anyway.  If you can find an
NEB catalog from 5-10 years ago it should have the sequences, or try their
web site.  If all else fails, contact NEB directly.

No affiliation, just a satisfied customer and neighbor.
