Replace Kimber Slide Stop

1944 14
The Kimber slide stop on my Compact CDP was giving me fits. It had discolored badly and was popping up on a loaded mag.

I bought an Ed Brown slide stop to replace it. Unfortunately the slide stop notch on the Kimbers is too wide, and while the Ed Brown will lock the slide back on empty, the part of the stop that engages the notch is too narrow to allow a slingshot/overhand release of the slide -- it never touches the front of the slide stop notch. I have to use the slide stop to release the slide.

Can anyone recommend a stainless replacement stop that will work with the Kimber?
