I'm thinking the internet might be your best friend here as in googling reproducing the Brown Bess, refurbishing Brown Bess, that sort of thing.

...Thanks Ace,.....I used to visit the Loyalist Arms site a few years ago, and have corresponded with them regarding my Tower 1863 Horse pistol ( I have a 10" barrel version, there's is 8") ....I wanted to replace the stock and thought I could get one through their supplier....Unfortunately, they don't deal in original pieces, but I have considered sending the lock assembly to them to replace springs....It is a great company,...and Canadian as well...

You should jump on Canadian Gun Nutz, there are alot of knowledgeable people there. There is a section for black powder.

Go to The Patriot Woodworker website, and enter Brown Bess in the search box. A gent by the name of Monkey Paws did a complete rebuild, well worth a look!

I thought Brown Bess was a horse... But I might be thinking of Black Beauty.
