    Might try Dixie Gun Works, since that’s where it came from originally. Not sure of they’re still in business, though. Numrich Arms may be able to help.

    Good luck!

    Dixie is alive and well--just got a holiday sale flyer from them. Like scattershot said, they'd be where I'd look first. 800-238-6785 (orders), 731-885-0700 (information), info@dixiegunworks.com (e-mail), www.dixiegunworks.com (website).

    I think it's $5 for the catalog, send more if you like it. Yes, the catalog is available.

    Might be hard to find the original style lock, as I think they used lots of old surplus Belgium parts to build some of the earlier rifles. I've got my first DGW catolog from 1974, spent many hours dreaming, but had no money!

    If Dixie Gun Works doesn't have the lock, you can try Track of the Wolf. They have full size pictures of many locks and parts in their catalog. Is the entire lock missing from your rifle, or do you just need some parts?

    From the picture he sent , it looks like someone swapped out the lock for one off another rifle.
