Need to find a 10.9.1 Combo update

All the links I get redirect to the latest 10.9.2 Combo update, which I can't use. The version I managed to download is tied to the Mac Pro update that came out in December, and this is for an iMac.

If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be helpful. :)

Unfortunately, combo updates don't exist for 10.x.1 releases. By virtue of being the first revision after a major point release, there's nothing to "combine," and so, no combo update.

There is the standard OS X 10.9.1 update file, which is as close as you're going to get:

Is there a specific reason why 10.9.2 won't do? Given the GotoFail issue on 10.9.1 and how pervasive it is throughout so many parts of the OS that depend on SSL/TLS, it's a really bad idea to to be running that...

There is no "10.9.1 combo updater", as you can only update from 10.9 - and you would have to find the original 10.9 full install if you want 10.9.1 again.
Or, certainly there would be torrent downloads for the 10.9.1 full install.
I'm not recommending going in that direction, just saying that it exists.

There's 3 different 10.9.1 updates. One for the 2013 MacPro, which you mentioned; one for the Late 2013 MBPro retina; and the more general one.
Here's that 10.9.1 Update:
