Can anyone recommend a source for a mag catch and mag release nut for a 1970's vintage M41?

The hard one is the mag catch nut....and unfortunately, the threaded portion of my mag catch is broken off flush with the inside of the nut.

Brownells has the catch but no nut. No nut on ebay either.

Suggestions?

ebay, Numrich, Brownells....none have the nut.

The stud tip is rounded and very small. Couldn't get a punch to bite. Figured it was a lost cause anyway, tried to cut a slot with a dremel for a jewelr's screwdriver but the slot was not centered enough and the cutting disc to wide. Pretty much trashed the nut.

I guess I'm committed now.

I called S&W and a nice fellow said he would check with someone in the fitting shop to see if current M41 parts would work. I should know tomorrow.

There were some of these on ebay a month ago...my timing is bad.
