Contax 137MA mirror


Unfortunately a recently-bought second-hand Contax 137MA suffered mirrow slip (I never knew about this fault) and the mirror stuck against a lens and a small corner chipped off. The small missing corner does not affect the image in the view finder (it can't be seen) and I wondered if this will affect the camera metering? Also does anyone know where to find a new mirror - according to some earlier posts it is not difficult to replace the mirror through the front and glue it back in. Are SLR mirrors a standard size - I have a couple of scrap Olympus Oms which might provide a replacement mirror if one can't be bought.
Thanks for any suggestions.
