I was cleaning some pistols and afterward this part was found on my gun mat. What part is it and where is it located in the pistol?

Fixed it! Woohoo! Why the hell did they make this one square and not rounded. Dan Wesson Bruin.
This is done for rear sight clearance. Some rear sights, i.e. Bomar BMCS, Some Novak Lo-mount, some LPA, Eliason, etc, intrude into the firing pin stop and need extra clearance, so the top of the firing pin stop is cut off.
