Default Parts for the Erma 22 LR M1 Carbine

I recently acquired an Erma 22LR M1 Carbine. It was not functioning well so I decided to do a detailed strip & clean. In the process I lost the Sear Release Pin.
This is the pin that keeps the Sear Release attached to the trigger assembly.

After searching the internet I found Sarco & Numrich selling Erma 22 parts, but neither had the Sear Release Pin.

Anybody have any ideas on where I could find one?

If no ideas on where I can find one, anybody know a way of getting the dimensions of the pin so I can just have one machined?
It was maybe 3/8 of an inch long and as big round as a tic tac.

Find a nail of the correct diameter and cut a little long and grind it length.

How about using one of those roofer's magnets. They are big flat, round magnet on a pole that almost looks like a metal detector getup or mine detector.

Is that tic-tac SAE or metric?

Default Measure The Pin Then Fabricate One ...

Easy to measure that lost pin then fabricate a new one using the exact pin diameter. Lots of places sell precision stock. Also try a True Value hardware store. They usually have a good selection of various pins.

The regular ones are SAE, the sugar-free version is metric.

I know I'm late to the party, but just got the ability to post...

I've purchased an operating slide from ITL Shooting Supplies
(far superior to the original and resurrected a rifle that hadn't been fired since 1968)

You might want to contact him for parts..

Not related to them, just a satisfied customer. Standard diclaimer applies
