Does anyone know where I can find one for sale?
I would check various auction sites and possible any camera repair shops. Used XK, even when nonfunctional, are usually too expensive to buy just for the battery cover. It's possible that someone out there can provide a replica done with a 3-D printer.
Does this fit the bill (or the camera) ?

I think it has a bayonet fitting rather than screw in. A bit like the battery cap on the Nikkormat (I'm not saying a Nikkormat cap will fit).
Edit - I had a look at a picture of the battery cover of the Minolta XE1 and it looks very similar. Perhaps look for a scrap XE series body.
