540 FGZ flash - base

are there any suppliers of the base for the 540 FGZ? mine took a tumble and of course the flange cracked. I read an old thread and a company CR Kennedy in New Zealand sells but I am afraid the USA is not in their distribution area.. I would rather not pay Pentax $170 for a simple repair - If I only had the part.... (the part that connects with the 4 small screws)

Most any flash base will work. Easy to find and cheap on Ebay.

This is at KEH. It is a flash sold as is. I'd call them and check to see if the foot is intact.
Ricoh will not sell parts to the consumer anymore. It's either send it in for repair or find a dealer who will order it for you.
Now me, I'd probably check Keh and save myself the ordeal of trying to get someone to order the part.

Gray @ USACAMERA fulfilled the order for the base and shipped very quickly. Thanks for the recommendation.
