Try eBay. Or find a parts Pentax DSLR model before the K-7 and hope that the solenoid hasn't been previously harvested.

Where do I get a white solenoid? #322337505674

or any old Pentax body from *istD upwards up to K-x (sometimes K-r as well)
but not K7 which was the first using a stepper-motor.
K10D/K20D have just one solenoid for aperture, the others have 2 (one for pop-up flash)

Samsung GX1, GX10, GX20

Further details:

The K-x and K-r came after the K7!
