K1000 Screen China to Japan

Fellow Pentaxians,

Would a K1000 SE split image focus screen taken from a ‘made in China’ camera transfer to a K1000 'made in Japan' camera?
The Japanese manufactured camera has the Microprism screen and with my eyes it is difficult to focus. I’m hoping someone has
tried this and would know the answer before I tear into two cameras.

Thank You

Yep it should, I would email Eric as he can do the swap for you and verify.
