Mir45 lens, w pentacon six mount repair recommendation

Hi everyone,
I just drop the lens on the floor !
It is a Mir 45mm non mc with pentacon six mount.
The lens is broken, but glass is ok. Seems like a small latch with a screw hole is broken.
The lens felt apart easily and I cannot put it into place.
I am not sure it is worth a repair, but would like to give it a try.
Can someone give me a recommendation?
Thanks.
Hoan

get a "new" one IMHO paying the man power to repair it may be more expensive than to buy a "new" one . If you donīt want to solve the problem this way- ask some repairmen in low wages countries

I took one of these apart and cleaned the aperture blades, and frankly they are held together with soft metal screws and vodka spit.

Not surprised that yours broke when dropped, and at ~$70 on eBay it isn't worth repairing unless you *really* liked the images it took (which would be unusual, but a reason!). I'd say look into the 50mm/4 CZJ Flektogon as a replacement...
