Need Unknown Brand Glazing Bead

A home owner from New Mexico says:
Can you please help me locate some replacement glazing bead for some older windows? I don't know what brand they are, they are 18 years old. Attached are files showing where the bead is removed, pics of the bead itself and measurements.

I'll need dark gray/bronze or black color. The diagram has a mirror image of the part, so you are looking at both ends.

Thanks for posting, Cynthia. I'm not sure we have an exact match for this glazing. How about our 55-186, or even our 55-164? Could either of these work as replacements?
A quick learner says:

Looks like 55-186 could work, but need it in a dark color. Is it possible to get in a dark brown or black? If I can get both in black, would you be able to send samples I can try?

Thanks for getting back to us, Cynthia. Unfortunately, we don't have any other colors. You may be able to spray-paint it, though. I recommend a Krylon plastic paint.
