Uberti Base Pin/Wedge issue

Hello all,

I purchased a used Uberti '49 pistol today on good faith and when it arrived, all was in good shape however the wedge 'falls' out of the gun. The prior owner used a paper clip alongside the wedge to keep it in the gun.

Is there any other option to fix this other than replacing the Base Pin?

If not and the Base Pin needs to be replaced, how difficult would it be to get a replacement and replace it?

Thanks all!

So much for "good faith". Still sounds like a fun piece, enjoy!
