The finish is Kibler tannic acid, iron nitrate, heat, wet sand 320/mineral spirits, thinned Lancaster maple, wet sand 320/mineral spirits, wet sand 400 till happy, boiled linseed oil 6-7 coats sanded or 0000 wool, some burnt umber artist oil paint scrubbed in between coats, more oil. The linseed seems to enhance the amber tones, I'm sure it will darken some yet. Wax.

Nock breech for a 67 caliber rifle. The drawing I believe is from "The Gun" by W Greener 1835 or maybe "The Gun and Its Development" W.W. Greener 1896, showing the Nock and another form of breeching. In modern testing the Nock is top tier for speed though maybe not the absolute best and best for uniformity shot to shot. The drawing shows breeching that I would not do with modern thread fits since this will leak gases/fouling/cleaning fluid/oil into the threads. Post industrial revolution thread fits require the breech be seated against a shoulder to form a seal.

This is so far from what builders here do that Id be surprised if someone here would take on the project. Here is a cropped image that gives a sense of what the stock looks like.

Maybe going forward we can limit responses to PM me, Id be interested in helping you or Try getting in touch with so and so- theyd probably be able to help you.  I dont want to go too far down the road if completely non-traditional muzzleloaders. Ive probably gone too far already.
