I have found Dave at D&N mercantile a very good, reliable, helpful, and affordable source for the 1803 H.F.rifle. The completed rifle sells new for $650.+$29 shipping. You will have to ask him if any kits/unassembled ones are available.
Contact him at dnmerc@...
or you can google him up by searching 1803 Harper's Ferry rifle.
Good luck, Raoul,
