Jim Chambers who now produces the locks originally made by Siler. Siler had been around for years, but I think he either passed away or retired.
Chambers also produces a first-rate kit of components. Only reason I didn't go with one of his was my desire for an ash stock. They pretty scarce.

Are those chunks of flint readily available? Pricey?

That piece came in the lock, a nice little touch really.
I use English gun flints in my .50 flintlock, about $2.00. Thats the same lock as is in my .50 so I won't need two sizes. I usually just order a few to stash whenever I'm buying something else from these folks. They been getting a lot of my money lately. Top shelf operation.

I have a few civil war re-enactor customers with 1859-63 Enfields that need service periodically. Those are mostly Italian repros, with soft cast parts. A few parts are no longer available, but your guy does not have percussion parts. Very similar locks, however.

I would think if Dixie Gun Works or Track of the Wolf did not have any parts you needed it would be a tough search from there on out.

I found many of needed parts at Lodgewood.com. They have a lot of old gun stuff.

Last of the odds and ends dribbling in still. Trigger guard, Double-set trigger. That little zip lock has all screws and pins needed for the whole gun. Nice touch. Mainspging vise to dis-assemble the lock, strop and compound for the chisels. The little plate withe the rounded ends is the back-plate that the lock sdcrews to.

Its been gone almost a month, so hopefully soon. With Pennsylvania deer season and muzzleloading season running from Thanksgiving through New Yeras, I suspect he is behind.

Just got a message from the stock dude. Rifle will be on its way back to me by end-of-the-week.
Shipping is adding up right quick like it seems.
-Blank to here from Tenessee, $45
-Blank to Pennsylvania, $33
-Barrel to Pennsylvania, $25

Plus the pair still have to be shipped back to me. If it was just a mite closer I'd be tempted to do a road trip to fetch it. 500 mioles but I'd be compelled to continue on to Binghamton to visit family.

Plus probably another $80 as a guess at small package shipping from Track-of-the-Wolf. Aside from the stock blank, everything has come from TOW.
