mx parts

I need the battery cover, the other cover in the bottom 9I do not even know what it is) the plastic cover of the advance lever and the shutter button and mechanism. Looking for the black parts but if your mx is silver its fine...beggars can't be choosers.

Just an FYI" I believe the two bottom covers (battery and external winder) can be swapped 1:1 with the ME, so if you have trouble finding them, you might look for a cheap ME body. Pretty sure the winder handle is slightly different, and I know the button definitely is.

Oh yeah, forgot to check.


battery cover: While the cover itself is the same as the ME, my MX cover has plastic extensions to load the batteries easier. Probably not absolutely needed though. Little MX bonus feature. Some K1000s have the same ones, but later ones are a bit different.

winder cover is the same

shutter advance plastic/vinyl cover looks the same (also looks like K1000)

shutter button -- what cover? It has a lock with a tiny plastic bit on the end, but otherwise looks just like K1000 button -- no plastic. (I'm looking at a silver MX)

I believe that although they look similar from the top, if you look at the bottom of the plastic advance lever cover, the metal portion of the lever that inserts is slightly different in shape between the MX and the ME. I don't have a K1000 handy at the moment, so I can't say for sure whether it is true of it or not, but it might be worth double checking.

Hmmm...think you're on to something there -- the shape of the handles looking for below is slightly different on each. Very slight, but different.

Tried what? Handle? Yes, they do look slightly different. You can buy my whole silver MX body if you want...
