Locating proper sliding door handle kits?

I guess my home is a little older (10years) but it seems all the stuff at Lowes has the lock mechanism too low. Ive attached a few pics of my original lock and the new one I got from Lowes. It does come with attachments to swap the locks however they arent 'taller' but rather wider. (unless im doing it wrong).

Anyways the old one I have is from DNS Industries however some googling has yet to be able to find a direct replacement. I dont know much about this stuff but if anyone does and can point me to where i might find locks to are the same size, in white. I am hopefully going to find a handle as well (in white). I noticed that this kit I got at lowes was junk as the handle doesnt sit flush with the lock portion so when you grab it, it flexes. Sigh

Guess they either dont make them like the used to, or Im expecting too much

You pictures don't show the entire handle... and we would also need the distancing between the mounting screw holes... and possibly the latch.
