I have a 20g Double Fowler flintlock French style. I was looking at recreating it so I would have a shooter also. I was trying to find a stock maker who would make one off the orginal or with the dimensions.

It sounds like you'd want more than just having a stock duplicated. There's a lot of gun builders on the americanlongrifles board who are very capable builders and stock makers. Many of them study antique guns just for the purpose of duplicating them. You should ask over there on their gun building sub-forum, and you can also try asking on the muzzleloadingforum's gun building sub-forum since there are some long established builders there too.

Here's my personal referral link to register over at the MLF which is free:

Beautiful gun. I commend you for creating a clone to shoot.

Articap's advice is right on the mark. Good folks at both places - the cream of the society in this country.

From the photo, I can not tell but is there any reason you are not using it?

Yes. He wants to build a copy to shoot so as to not risk damage to the original. A laudable goal.

most of the screws are striped. The stock has been repaired several times. The locks are loose because some of the wood is missing behind them and joining screw is striped. The screws for the flints , the threads are striped out. Its a wall hanger.

Much better answer, too many people retire a firearm merely because it is old.

If you need help locating parts, let me know. Can't help with the stock, at least not right now.

Good luck.
