Replacement Thumb Turn Needed (Schlage B160)

I have a perfectly functioning Deadbolt (Schlage B160) with a broken interior thumb turn (antique Brass-609). Any suggestions on where to find this part?
Thanks

If you want a new one, be prepared to pay. The parts are not cheap. 2nd hand you might find from a local locksmtih.

I remember ordering a Kwikset thumbturn for a customer once. It listed at $22. (more than the list price of a new deadbolt)

As Global indicated, the part can be ordered but will likely cost close to the price of a new lock bought from a big box discount store...call a smithy that's been in business for many years, they (we) tend to collect a lot of jun....er, misc. parts over the years, so you might get lucky.
BTW, Schlage parts don't break easily....a few ounces of pressure on the thumbturn is all it should take to throw the bolt.
Be sure and check bolt alignment, etc to ensure smooth operation.
