Mouser list a switch 629-GPB023B05BR which looks like it will fit
the same diameter hole. Probably much better quality I would

To prevent excess heat reaching the switch body, clamp a
haemostat* between the switch and the tag.
*A pair of needle nose or pointed pliers held shut with an elastic
band is a good substitute.

I'm sure there's probably something else out there but it seems
like the key with those switches is not put too much heat on the
terminals when you solder the wires in place. They seem to act
very similar to relay contacts when you put too much current
across them. We used to always say that the contacts were
"gulled", not sure if that is the correct spelling or even the
correct term but that's what we used to say where I worked a
number of years ago.
When I solder those terminals I quickly push and release the
button multiple times as soon and I pull the soldering iron tip
away. There were times a while back that the button would stick
on the in position and it was from too much heat. Now they seem
to hold up better with a lighter touch with iron but those
switches are not good quality right out of the gate so I know
what you are saying.
