I've got a couple early Canuck one piece pins, and to me, they're really tough to find. I'm not sure if there's a difference between Brit and Canuck, but I'd assume not.
Mine are used, btw.

The one piece firing pins were in service between 1957 - 1960 when they were replaced with the standard 2 piece type. When they were uncounted during inspections they were removed and generally ended up as punches.

The Australians also started with 1 piece firing pins.
