Ballard Firing Pin

I need a firing pin for a Cody Ballard 40-65. They don't have any at Wyoming Armory. Does anybody make them?

Coltsmoke,
If you take your broken firing pin to a competent gunsmith, they should be able to make you a new one. I broke a rolling block pin during a competition years ago. Several competitors had spare firing pins(I guess I should have had one too), but I found out there were several different styles of pins, and none of them were the same as mine. John Bly made me a new one, and it worked fine for as long as I owned the gun.
