Is rear deraileur bolt replacable - shimano alvio ??

Snapped my rear deraileur bolt today
No visible damage to mech or mech hanger (both look straight). Field repair was to shorten the chain & go SS. Is the bolt replaceable ?? Or is it new mech time ??
If the rear derailleur is a Shimano then the bolt is often the same from one model to another. A good LBS should have a few spare secondhand ones lying around. It's easy to change the bolt, as it's held in with a circlip.
