Lens Mount Broken :(

I recentally somehow cracked the lens mount ring on my DA L 55-300mm lens (plastic mount).
Does anyone know a retail store in vancouver in which I can get his part?
Can I take this part off the DA L 18-55 and attach it to the 55-300?
Does anyone else have any relative information?

FYI: I need this part ASAP.

No idea on your questions ... but I have a DAL 18-55 and a DA 55-300 and I will try to take a look here ASAP to see ...

Maybe some epoxy/glue could stabilize the crack (?) Did anything break entirely off?

There was a thread about this a longish time ago:

You can buy the mount from Pentax, if I recall correctly. Second page on above link has the part number (post #17).

I changed the mount on the 55-300 with the mount on the 18-55 and <the 55-300> now works fine.
I guess I will order a part in for the 18-55mm.
