I agree with Bob that Dunlap makes great repro stocks- nice wood, nicely inletted and will finish up into a good product.

If you are going to be using the gun as a shooter, the easiest and quickest solution is to use a cut down rifle stock. If your woodworking enthusiasm is contemplating finishing a repro, then you should be able to handle the work involved filling the rod channel and reshaping the forend (or adding a new forend tip if cut back too far to salvage the original).

Ed Kneisley usually has some cut down stocks suitable for such projects.
