What's your time worth?
It will take more time to find one, and you'd have to buy
more than you want, compared to just buying 50 of the
cheapest pens you can find (verifying beforehand that they
have springs you find acceptible).
That's just how it goes, if you want to have a part and
don't want high volume (50 springs is not high volume) you
often find it's cheaper to buy the cheapest thing that
incorporates that part.
--Funny you should mention this; I just did the same quest, but I
only needed a dozen or so. All I did was make the rounds of the usual
places, i.e. the local metal supplier, the local compressor repair guy, etc.
Hit any shop that's small and trying to advertise and you'll get lots.
