 In maybe 2 minutes of clicking I found these reasonably priced and using
standard slidelock assemblies, sold brand new on both sides of the pond:

 Slidelock assemblies and individual parts of those are sold separately, 
for all shell sizes actually, in retail quantities by the usual suspects 
(Mouser, Farnell/Newark, RS, etc.), so with suitably designed connectors 
(i.e. ones that accept 4/40 UNC jack posts rather than thumb screws only; 
not all unfortunately) these could be used to replace original screwlock 
bits.  I used these sources on a couple occasions to replace damaged or 
missing parts.
