Mike I found 4 orginal decap pins for my 44/40 on ebay. You might try Dusty Texan on this site as he was going to make a few for me but he got upset for some reason and would not make them for me, but might help you out.

Must not be on the forum any longer because I can’t find him. Can anybody help me out with making one of these, or selling me an original??

I have these Winchester reloading tools in 44WCF and 38WCF. I used a carbide drill bit the diameter of the orifice in the tool, and carefully ground down the tip to push the primer and not damage the primer hole in my brass. It requires a bit of extra work, I strike it on a bench vise to pop the spent primer, but originals are unobtanium from what I see. Absence of said pin made both of my original tools affordable, however!
