If you check out the Equipment Exchange or Build it Yourself forums at I am sure you will find either the parts you are looking for or at least a buyer. I am also seeing people putting up posts about vintage / classic rifles. Good luck and I hope to see a pic posted when you finish the restoration if you go that route.

Thank you

Mike is right, check out the EE over on and look for a guy by the name of Colt653 because he is having new replicas of the old slab side lowers made up!
