Strangest '74 firing pin I have ever seen. Since you have the drawing and dimensions it looks like a simple lathe job. Make up a extra one while set up and turning it.

You have MOST (not all) of the dimensions posted.  Simple to have a good machine shop make one (of the RIGHT material) if you have an example or all the dimensions.  Agree, have more than one made!

Thanks all, I think I have a local machinist who is willing to take on the job , will know for sure on Wednesday. Would still like a purchase option if anyone has any suggestions.

I already checked VTI and they have the part listed a 'No Longer Available'.
