Grey RS capacitors.
 
Hello everybody,
I'm looking for some grey-sleeved RS capacitors, .0047 (4n7), 250v. Length is slightly more than 10 mm. By chance, does anybody have some to sell?
I appreciate any help you can provide.

I don't know what type of RS capacitors you want: do you know the voltage or the dielectric type? or what period your equipment was made?

These were a former type of foil capacitor made by Erie in a grey or green heatshrink
covering. The main problem with these is the welded leads break off at the ends of the
capacitor body. A better modern type would be ;

Hello, thank you for your kind reply.
Restoration73: Yes, it is true, they were quite weak because the welding tends to snap off, but I'd need these to repair a device of which I'd like to keep the exact visual aspect.
Julesomega: they are identical to Restoration73's link, but in a grey heat shrink sleeve, with a blue writing '0047 250v'.
If anybody had some of these, or know where to get them, please let me know.
