Default Helwan Brigadier 1951 Locking Block

So I have buddy at work who has a Helwan Brigadier he said he'll sell me for $20. Problem is, it has the infamous broken locking block. I've searched the web high and low and I can't find any suitable replacement.

Anyone have any ideas/leads? If I can fix this, I think I can justify $20

Take a look at the Beretta 92 series.

I don't think the Baretta 92 series locking block will work, you'd do best looking for a Barretta 51. Of course that will be as difficult as finding a Helwan part.

Your best hope may be, other than online, is going to gun shows. You might find some help here:

I sold a Helwan at a gun show several months back, I didn't want a gun where parts were nearly impossible to find. Numrich has some parts, but no locking blocks. Also, ProMag does make a magazine for the Helwan.

I bought the gun for $50 and sold it for $250.
