Non-standard Window Sash Locks

My wife and I bought an older home this past summer, and are currently going through and renovating it slowly. The windows on the house are probably 10 - 15 years old, but they are vinyl and in good shape. Unfortunately, the window sash locks look dated and the aluminum paint is peeling. Unfortunately, the hole to hole distance is 2 5/8 inches, which is a size that I have not seen in any of the big box stores.
Does anyone know where I can find odd-sized window sash locks? I have looked all over...

Try vandykes restoration or other vintage hardware retailers that specialize in salvage or reproduced hardware

If you remove one you could look for a brand name on it or part number ,Truth is a very common hardware brand. Also take one with you to a local window shop they may be able to help, avoid the big boxes, at 15 yrs old they will likely never have it anyways.
