    Looking for a small part for my Canon A-1; the guard that pops up to lock the AT dial is missing, along with the screw. If anyone has this part for sale, please contact me with a suggested price. I haven't been able to find a place that will quote it yet. Or if you know of any good sources for parts ...
    Many thanks

    You may find something on the bay, as-is for parts will get a couple of hundred hits. A1's for as little as $5-$10 plus shipping.
    There are also sub-catagories like film photography or vintage.

    I never thought of looking for camera parts there but geez they're abundant.

    You could ask KEH.

    Thanks John and Jeff. I was hoping to avoid buying a whole 'nother dead camera body for the one part. I'll keep checking ebay but no luck yet; KEH does repairs but all I need is the screw and part.

    I've got an A-1 I'm using for parts... I can send you the guard and screw for free as long as you pay shipping costs are. I'm near DC, so it would have to go across country, but that's better than nothing, right? PM me if you're interested.
