    Argus C2 PArts?

    Is there a place I can get parts for an Argus C2? I'm looking for the little screw/stud that holds on the aperture scale on the front of the lens. just need one.

    Go to a thrift store and pick up a broken point and shoot. You should be able to find at least one screw that will fit. That's what I would do.

    All those screws would be metric. No good.

    I would be looking online for a small assortment of small SAE screws.
    Edit. Until then, if it is the dial on the front of the lens, and if it is a simple thin metal plate, I would use Testors Cement for Wood Models, which is what I use for these sorts of purposes. Holds pretty well, and can be later removed when the right screw comes along.

    I think your best bet would be to find another C2 or C3 (they're almost identical cameras), and either swap the entire lens, or just take the screw you need, off the "parts" camera.

    I think thats what I'll do. I'm heading to a sap meat this weekend and they have always had cameras so I'll poke around there too

    Check with the Argus Collector's Group, they are all things Argus, they have helped me several times. I also have a box full of C-3 parts and I think they use the same lens. Let me know and I will see if I can find one. They are great little cameras and might surprise you with the results.

    Hmm its been about a year since taken one of these lens apart, not sure exactly what you need. But I have a lens which I think is complete but the aperture is not adjusting with the ring. Its yours if you need it.
