The loading finger on my 1911 nozzle broke this evening, is there a replacement nozzle available or one that can be modified?

What options do I have?

Thanks in advance

After how many shots did it brake? It should withstand up to at least few thousand shots.
I’m not 100% sure but it seems to me that the nozzle for an airsoft 6mm version should also fit the 4.5mm version. I have both 4.5 and 6mm and they look quite similar. Try an airsoft nozzle. You have tons of airsoft stores in the USA, many more than we have here in Canada. One I know is Evike, in California, it is pretty good.

Thanks for the reply. I was scanning the airsoft parts last night for something that looks similar.

I picked this 1911 up used so no idea of how many rounds are through it. I think it's quite a few though, since I have it I have run maybe 10 mags through it.

I often have this problem with a wide range of guns, the loading fingers are often brittle, what I do is drill a hole back into the remaining plastic and put a steel pin where the finger used to be, then I coat it with JBweld so it doesnt chew up my plastic BBs, but you can probably skip the JBweld if youre using steel bbs

heres my Broken nozzle on my WE remington ACR
