Argus C3 shutter cocking lever

Afternoon all. I recently picked up an Argus C3 but didn't realise that the shutter cocking lever was missing. Anyone know where I could get hold of one?

Try ebay. Just buy a whole C3, crummy looking ones regularly sell for under $10.

Contact the Argus Collectors Group. I'm sure someone there will have a spare.

They aren't very common in the UK and fetch a premium when they do. However I managed to pick up a beater pretty cheap.
