    Pentax K1000 question

    Hello, everyone:

    I recently inherited a Pentax K1000 which I have wanted to have for a long time. It needs a CLA (the exposure meter may not work too well, and the film counter is stuck); the shutter speeds seem to be OK. My questions:
    a.) About how much should I be looking at for a CLA?

    b.) If my local pro shop can't do it, do you have recommendations for repair shops that can handle the work, and do mail order?

    Thanks in advance.

    With best regards,

    Steve Mack

    I have sent my old Pentax cameras to http://pentaxs.com/. Very happy with the result, and he even has parts for cameras such as Spotmatic.
