k2 battery door

I just bought a k2 and its missing the battery door. Any suggestions on a good source for parts. Do other models share the same door? k1000, me models?

Thanks,
Heath

K2 Battery cover

I no longer have a K2, but as I recall it the battery cover has two plastic extrusions that hold the 2 batteries in line within the battery cavity. Take care that you don't get a generic (Chinese "New?) screw-in cover that doesn't have the prongs.

Try your local camera shop parts drawer, KEH, graze ebay, or even buy one of the K2's on ebay right now bid at $10!!

Thanks, probably end up going with KEH. I just end up sending to them to get new gaskets and lube. Why are these so cheap?? They do everything and seem pretty solid. Something I don't know? lol
