If your not in to big of a hurry I'll pull mine and take a pic and post it with measurements. I think it would be a fairly easy match. Had mine out yesterday because it was to stiff. Filed down the little center hump it has to ride over to take on and off safety.Pics should be up tomorrow at the latest. If your in a hurry, try a couple of springs that will fit in the hole, Ink pin, etc; and cut to allow the pin(can probably make one from a small nail) to hold a little pressure on the ball. I don't believe its to critical as long as it holds a little tension. Just got home from work. Kinda lazy right now.
