Second sweep hand

I recent;y purchased a stunning 1938 minuteman and the second hand is missing. The movement is a 7AP, and I've been searching high and low, and haven't found a 7AP second hand. I remember reading that the parts were often interchangable, so would using a 7AK second sweep hand (the closest one i could find: the model before the 7AP) work on a 7AP movement?

Yes it is interchangeable with the 7AP. I'm assuming you meant just a seconds hand and not a sweep seconds hand. The 7AK movement was not made sweep seconds hand.

i'm referring to the seconds hand at the 6 o clock position.

That's what I thought you meant. It's interchangeable with the one you found.
