Replacement parts for a Llama 9mm?

Wow, been a while since I was here. Feels like coming home...

A friend had a Llama 9mm made in 1988. It has "H2" stamped by the trigger guard. The gun was having cycling problems. He was so frustrated with it, he told me I could have it, if I wanted to try to fix it.

I pulled it apart and found the slide stop was broken. It looks similar to the one in my Springfield .45, but when I tried it, that one doesn't lock open on an empty mag. I don't think it is reaching the mag follower.

My question is, are there any slide stops that I can substitute for the Llama part?

Looks like all the slide stops are sold out there. Any ideas on parts from other manufacturers that I could substitute?

Do you still have the old slide stop? If so, is it broken, or worn? Borken can be welded, and polished back, but it takes a skilled welder.

If you know a good machinist, he can make you one in about an hour. At current shop rates, that bolt stop will cost you about as much as the gun is worth.

The bolt is broken and I don't have both pieces. It just barely reaches the barrel linkage, but doesn't catch enough of it to cycle when it was fired. I'd rather not spend a ton of money if I don't have to. Thus my question about parts from another weapon or manufacturer that might work.

Thanks for the responces guys.
