Western Gun Parts? I'm not sure if any of our site sponsors carry such a beastie?

Try a nail. I've pulled more than a few very old firearms apart that have had firing pins made from nails.

You might try K&E Gunparts in Saskatoon.

You could try using an RCBS decapping pin. Better than a nail.

Worth a try. I've used finishing nails in place of decapping pins in a pinch.
