Default 22/32 FIRING PIN

Bought a 22/32 from 1912 with a broken firing pin. After a few days in kroil, removed broken FP and recoil bushing. Ordered what I thought was correct FP ( and only type available). Last resort would be to machine one, but I don't know correct length since broken part of pin was missing. Pic shows recoil bushing, ordered new FP, broken FP. Single pic shows Numrich FP for model 34 (out of stock), looks close, but not exact. Any ideas on where to get correct FP?
Thanks.

Talked to them and have one coming they believe will work. It is for the 1953 kit gun, 34, 35. If I understood correctly, they make the part, it's not NOS. Find out soon, they said they'd mail it today and I could return if it doesn't fit. Certainly pleasant to deal with over the phone.

FAST! Got FP in from First. Diameter was .082, had to turn it down to .072 to fit freely in recoil bushing. The rear extension was same diameter, but .105 vs .075 length on broken FP. Seems to function fine, protrusion looks good. Shoots fine but due to different taper of pin, spring return is a little weak. Should have stretched old spring, but good enough. Thanks for the help. Pic shows Brownell's FP at top, First FP in middle, and broken FP bottom.
