Maybe the person with the broken bolt should be savvy enough to search the dealers section for new bolts... But I know that I wouldn't waste my time on a long-shot like searching for SL-68 I parts. And instead I would probably post a thread asking for help...

To which, I would appreciate any unique solutions that MCB's members have to offer. It would just increase frustration to have a dealer who knows where a rare part is and not be able to tell me.

(Unique solutions is the important term... Because if sheridan bolts, or sl68I parts were everywhere, then it wouldn't be unique.)

I know it might take some more discussion, but some comprehensive policy on this topic would make MCB a better place.
Wouldn't this fall under a WTB?
