1911 Sear Pin for Ambi Safety?

I'm having a hard time finding a sear pin for an ambi safety. The pin with the cutout on the end. Does anyone know where I can buy one? I'm having a hard time finding one online.

I have several 1911's with ambi safeties, and they all use a standard
sear pin. The pin on the left side SAFETY has a cutout---which the
right side safety engages.

You may have to buy it as a unit.

There are at least 2 types of ambi safeties that I know of. One where the right safety is held in by the grip panel and one where it is held in place by a sear pin with a cutout in it. Both mate with the thumb safety on the other side.

The King's ambi that I have on a couple of guns came with the headed pin to retain the right side lever. If your safety set did not come with one, the best source would be the manufacturer.

Is your gun an RIA 1911? My RIA Tactical uses a long sear pin with groove to retain the right side ambi lever. If so try Advanced Tactical at: (775) 537-1333. Maybe they can help.

I had to contact the manufacturer to get a replacement safety. It was for a GSG 22. The sear pin size is different than a standard 1911. I bought an ambi safety and can't even use it. I'll give it to my dad.
