Just an update for everyone. I sent the camera to Greg Weber (a.k.a. Weber Camera) in Nebraska. Apparently he's the go-to man for Konica repairs. He took care of the following:
- sticky aperture blades (the biggest problem by far)
- sticky shutter speed selection ring
- repair (recalibration) of the rangefinder
- rewind crank replacement
- light seal replacement
- battery conversion to 1.5 V 625-type button cell
- Clean, Lube, Adjust
- Test for light leaks
All this cost $180. To some, it may sound like a lot, but I think it's worth it. Currently, I have a roll of Kodachrome in there, and I'm looking forward to seeing the results.
New member here, first post..I love old rangefinders especially Yashica GSN/GTN. Somehow I ended up with two Konica Auto S2 that I could part with if you guys need parts. I have a battery adapter and the Jon Goodman seal kit I never got around to installing in one of them. Heck I got one in the original box with case, stap, manual too. Both need minor work. Ricoh 500G also.

If they're apart I could use a shutter. Battery adapter too.
