Firing Pin Replacement Colt New Service M 1917

I have a Colt New service M 1917 with a broken firing pin. I managed to run down a replacement with the rivit. The rivit it is just a straight pin and needs to have both ends peened on the sides of the hammer to hold the firing pin in and it has to be smooth to fit in the frame slot for the hammer. Anyone have an idea of how this is supposed to be accomplished? If I figure it is too much, I may have to send it out to a pistol smith for the work but no compent pistol smiths in this area anymore. Some smiths will work on M 1911s with varing degrees of sucess but many don't seem to know what they are doing on revolvers. so, can anyone reccomend some body who can do the work without ruining the gun?

I can recommend a very competent Colt smith, but he's nowhere near Pittsburgh. PM me if you're interested.
This ain't New Zealand. Just saying.
