We don't carry the exact snap-in glazing bead you have here, unfortunately, but we do have two types that may work. Start by looking at our 55-306 and 55-080 . For the 55-080 , you would need to cut down the leg so that it will fit in the sash. Look them both over and see what you think.

To add onto what Paul said, I agree that the 55-080 might work if you cut off the back leg. I have done this in the past to repair windows where I could not find the exact bead and it worked great. 

Also take a look at the 55-197 and the 55-306 used on Andersen windows. These are worth considering, too, in my opinion.
