I dropped my AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens and it.
Several of the cheaper "kit" lenses offered by Nikon have plastic mounts.

I got mine from Nikon usa for about 17 dollars including shipping. The part was just the plastic, so I had a bit more work to do with reattaching the spring loaded part, oh and I broke the wire too, which meant a dab of solder to fix but all is now good and the lens is working perfectly again. Out of curiosity I'm wondering if I can use the boyonet mount from one lens to another. Half way the repair the lens came apart further than I indented, but fortunately that was fixed by unplugging the ribbon cable from the Auto/Manual focus switch and unscrewing it, fitting the plastic ring again, and plugging/screwing the button back.

I also have a 55-200mm zoom, and it has the same plastic mount. I have the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18-105mm 1:3.5-5.6G ED lens, and bought a plastic replacement ring of e Bay or something for €2,- or so.

The cost of replacement part was around 17 dollars, including shipping. The actual lens that was repaired is the 18-55mm G series zoom.
