Pentax K2 prism

I have a K2 with a prism that has a small silvering defect. I would like to replace the prism and am wondering if one from a different more easily obtainable model would fit.

There was some discussion along these lines some time back. See: Pentax Film SLR prism compatability - PentaxForums.com
Opinion seemed divided but some posters felt that the K2 did not share a prism with the KM, KX and K1000.

Thanks for that, so it doesn't look too hopeful. I did find a post elsewhere that suggested the prism from a Minolta XG-1 would fit so perhaps if all else fails I will try that.
