ultra raptor II recoil guide rod issue

sorry, but my first official post is already regarding a problem on my newly purchased ultra raptor....
Today I've disassembled the gun , and I've noted that the recoil spring plug is broken... the spring is kept in place only by a small part of the plug "rim" since all the rest of the rim is missing...

It is clear that needs to be replaced, but the question is : is it necessary to change all the guide rod assembly (abt. 50$) or is it possible to find, purchase and replace only the plug ??

Here's a picture of the broken piece

Kimber may send you one without cost or you can buy the whole assembly...

I couldn't find the plug by itself....
