The Millenco Mantis Mechanism is one of the more expensive lock mechanisms to replace and this will definitely be reflected in the final price you pay.  The Millenco Mantis MK1 is the only mechanism that has the unique 117/86PZ measurements that match the door handle.

It may be possible to repair these locks but that is at the locksmiths discretion, as sometimes other parts of the lock may fail afterwards.  Many locksmiths feel it's best to supply a new system so they can provide a 12 month warranty.
