I am preparing to build a copy of a John Dreisbach original that has a C. Bird & Company flintlock.  Can anyone recommend a close match for this lock?

You'll have to make one.

TRS might have a suitable parts set.

I'm sorry, I thought we were building flintlocks...not fiberglass stocked, tactical bolt action sniper rifles.
