Check your email, as I sent you a photo of the early variant and the associated parts needed.
I was hoping someone might know from where I may procure an older version barrel catch parts set for the P9S.
I have a 1984 Chantilly that is in very good shape expect for the fact that the seller sold it to me with a broken cocking spring Pin.
It seems that it cannot be fixed as the pins are welded before the receiver is rolled so a welder cannot access The appropriate location in order to reattach the pin correctly.
As a result I purchased a used 1973 lower receiver, actually it was pretty cheap from Numrich.
But it appears that HK changed the Barrel Catch design somewhere between 1973 and 1984.
Here is a photo of the parts set I need (provided by @Marine0303 ).
Here is the newer model version (pic comes from Numrich's website).
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated as I love these pistols and was going to make this one a shooter (making the best of a bad situation because the original was in great shape save the broken pin and a dented rear sight post that James fixed).

"Just because you're paranoid doesn’t mean they're not after you!"
Update for any P9S owners with older models. HKPro Sponsoring Vendor, Augustine Gun Parts @Augustine does have the older model barrel catch pieces, all of those needed to operate.
During my scurrying to solve my issue I reached out to Ted and he responded yesterday telling me they have it and sent a picture of the items needed.
However, I no longer need it as Numrich has a newer model used replacement receiver for which I am exchanging the one they originally sent to me.
But I wanted to let those like @chuckster62 who have some of the older models and @Marine0303 who does a fare bit of work on these that these parts are available from Ted in Germany.
Hope this helps somebody, some day.

Thank you, I just sent him an e mail. I am looking for a early style P9S 9 mm bolt head. Found in the early blued models. I have a new style back up, looking for an older one. They are very different and not interchangeable.
