    Sorta looks like the one I posted, but that stock looks longer than mine.

    Should work.


    Edit: Here's the picture:

    It used to have the gold bans around the barrel and the stock and had the same orange tip. I think it was my brother's gun when he was a kid.

    There's no brand or anything on mine, just has Davy Crockett on the stock and a sticker that says something like "Made in America, by Americans".

    Looks ok to me apart from the silver (we paint it black) breech plates. A greeblie hides them anyway though
    The stock is more curved too. Looks almost graceful.

    You could sand them down anyway?

    Here's a real one and yours





    Your stock would need a lot of work plus you'd be missing the loading rod basket. (thing underneath)

    I think it'd be a great start... in fact I'd be very interested in seeing that
