    Little screws

    I just got a Pentax digital spot meter and it is missing one of the tiny black screws that hold the collar to the end of the barrel. Where would I go to replace it without having to send it to a repairman?
    Thanks

    I don't know how to accurately measure it. It is approximately 3/32 wide with a phillips cross at the head and it is approximately 1/16th inch long.

    Surplus Shed, in Pennsylvania, is just now advertising bags of little assorted screws from cameras, binocs, old raptars, etc, etc.
