It was an factory accessoire in the 50th/60th, I don't know the exact date Walther started to deliver without it.

I might give it a go and try making one. My Manhurin .32 is the only pistol that has the indicator and didn't come with the tool. I don't need any specs because it will be file-n-fit, then I can give it a hardening/tempering. I know I have some O1 annealed in my shop, but maybe not thin enough (around 1mm/3/64").

Decided to go an easier route. Found a beater center ground flathead bit that tapers to 1mm and about the correct width. I'll just dremel the middle to create the forks. Already hardened and will fit my magnetic driver. Not an OEM style, but it will go in my spare parts bag in case I need to ever remove the indicator for cleaning or worn spring.
I'll take a pic when I'm done with it.

Found the darned thing it was in a wood box with some tools inside my range Gung-Ho pistol box, been there since Moby Dick was a minnow as we say in the NAVY, now all tools, manual and box are complete as they were originally in 1972!!!!!!!!! Gee just the plastic box sell for $35!!

Well, I went and made one from some 16 ga (approx. 1.2 mm thick) steel and it worked fine. Cost me only a half hour of my time and only if/when I'll need the tool.
It's just a rough proto and I'll make a nicer one and cold blue it. I's fairly hard steel, so I don't think I need to temper the tips. No sign of them stressing.
