I need to make a flat firing pin for an Echasa Eibar MAB GZ .32 semiauto. I have the old firing pin to use as a guide. Every source I've run across seems to want to sell me a 24" chunk of steel, 90% of I will never use. Anyone have any hints for alternative sources of small amounts? I only need about 2 1/2" x 1/2" to make one, I'll probably want to make two since they are prone to breaking in the same area. Needs to be 3/16" thick.
And yes, I know I can buy them from an online seller, but those are also from teardowns and have who knows how many rounds through them and may bust first time out, just be $30 down the drain.

May be better off using a small piece of tool steel rather than regular steel. Myself, I'd just buy a couple of used firing pins if they're available. I mean, it's for an "Echasa Eibar MAB GZ .32 semiauto", that doesn't sound like something you're gonna shoot a lot.
