I finally took the plunge and bought a PKD1 kit off eBay that was partially assembled. I got what I considered to be a great deal, but unfortunately, the kit is missing the following parts:

Slide switch button
back trigger
both trigger springs
trigger screws
LED kit
handle screws
light box screws?

I figured I could 3D print some of the missing parts, but the directions don't give much of any indication of sizing. I also don't know what the screw or spring sizes are. So basically, I'm hoping some with a PKD blaster can maybe point me in the right direction for either replacements or maybe good measurements so I can try to recreate the parts on my 3D printer. Any help would be appreciated!

With parts missing and the unlikely chances of getting existing replacement parts so high, I`d opt for a refund and regroup.

You may want to contact Rick Ross (Doppelganger on this board).
He's the maker of this kit and could offer you some tips/counsel about replacement and scale.

I am pretty sure a Coyle trigger and Slide switch button will work on this build. Everything else can be bought at a hardware store and Radio shack for less than $15 bucks

I wound up getting a hold of Rick. He had the 3D files for the PKD1 and was able to send me the the trigger and switch files. I have a 3D printer, so this is a perfect solution for me. I've already sourced the missing screws and all the electronics for the LED kit. As soon as I track down some screws, I'll have everything I need!
On a side note, Rick is a really nice guy and I can't thank him enough for helping me out.
