See if Numrich has the part. It shouldn't cost too much. It could turn up though, I lost mine once; I ended up finding it a couple of days lter. I didn't even know it had fallen out until I had issues with it.

Scroll down to the bottom, they have trigger pins for $1 shipped. You'd be hard pressed to get it for that cheap at Numrich.

I did the same thing.
When I took mine apart the first time I didnt know that pin would just fall out.

Went to the reich site and bought two. In the meantime, you can cut the shank of a drill bit and put it in there. Rick takes a while to ship so if you want to shoot it in the meantime the drill bit trick works just fine.

Oh, the size.

You are looking for a loose fit so parts move freely. But not too loose.
I tried different sizes until I got one that slide in nice without any play.

you've gotta love the macgyver school of gunsmithing!

Yep, the stock keeps it in place, so there is nowhere for it to go.
I used the drill shank, and took the rifle shooting, and put 100 rounds down range with it.
Couple days later, the correct pins showed up and I made the swap, but kept the homemade one (just in case)
