Where can I buy bc 377 transistors? Answered

I am trying to make a spurt bot, and am having trouble finding the bc 377 transistor which is needed. I need to know where I can buy them, or if there are any other transistors that I can use.

Where are you in the world ? It affects where I suggest you get the bits.

There isn't anything terribly special about a BC377, it has a fairly high Ic max at 1A, so you need to replace it with something similar in power, gain is low at 45-500, but Vce max won't worry you - you'll probably find something in Radio Shack. Otherwise, its Mouser, Newark or Digikey.

I didn't know they had transistors in 377 B.C. or in more modern terms before common era. They may be found in a museum or something.
