Ultra CDP 2 Ambi Safety Problem

Hi guys, new guy here.
I have an Ultra CDP 2 that I carry every day.
Last week I was in the woods, stopped for a break, and noticed that my left side ambi safety lever was missing.
I talked to Kimber and ordered a new one.
They asked me if the hammer pin was missing. (and they were out of stock or I would have went ahead and ordered one)
I don't know what the hammer pin is?
I looked at schematic drawings of the pistol and it is not clear where the pin goes in to the frame.

Could someone be so kind as to take a pic of their Kimber and show me where the hammer pin goes in to the frame?

Thank you for the link to the diagram.
but, I have already looked at it and am still not certain where the hammer pin inserts in to the frame.

I have not, nor will I be, a big fan of the Kimber ambi. thumb safety. you loose the right one and the hammer pin can drop out leaving you with a non-functioning gun. I either replace it with a Ed Brown or Wilson. Just a little more peace of mind on my part. You can do it yourself or have a Gunsmith to perform the delicate operation. Just my 2 cent on the subject.
