[ACQUIRED] Tripod mount for DA*300mm

Hello everyone, I have purchased a Pentax DA*300 and am now looking for the tripod mount that would go on it. I have searched B&H and Adorama and can't seem to find one. Does anyone know where I can get one?

Thank you
Jim Browning

Not sure off-hand where you can find one, but just so you know when you are looking, the tripod mount for the DA*60-250 will also fit the DA*300. It's a slightly different design in that it's a little taller to allow you to gets your fingers around the zoom ring. The DA*300 tripod mount is a bit shorter, almost flush to the body of the lens (as there is not zoom ring to interfere with). But the connection is the same from the mount to the ring, so in case you come accross one for the 60-250, it will work just fine as well.
