Where to find a replacement screw-in shutter release for a type 119?

A lot of the very early Retina I models (117, 118, 119, and so on) had a plunger type shutter release that could screw in, the same way that you'd screw in a cable release. I've got an old type 119 that is missing the screw-in shutter release, and can't help but think that would make operation easier than the other non-removable shutter release. Does anyone know where I could find one?
