The little latch that keeps the upper receiver from flipping open (part A1) broke on my FPG, can I order one from you KWA?

I conatcted KWA, they told me to go to Spartan Imports (which I expected). Then I talked to Spartan Imports, they said that they can't ship that part directly to me. What do I do? I'm tried of using electrical tape to hold my FPG together and not being able to fold it up.

Is this the kit or the complete gun manufactured by KWA?

Complete gun. I cannot find that latch in stock on any website for a couple months now. Kind of frustrating.

I owned a Magpul FPG for a couple of years a month ago the latch broke on the handle. I also called KWA and Spartain recently and both said that the parts are currently discontinued. So I decided to take matters into my own hands and had the part machined out of stainless steel. I have been using it for a couple of weeks and seems to work pretty well, no modifications needed.

If anyone needs one of these parts I can have it made, but I at least need 10 people on board in order to make this worth while. Spread the word, here is the picture of the part.

Let me know.
