Gillespie brass and steel butt plates.
Right now I carry two different types of butt plates. Both are available in nice yellow brass (no bronze!) or steel. The Gillespie style is a copy of the one on a Phillip Gillespie rifle signed and dated 1848. A picture of this rifle is shown on page 36 of my book The Gillespie Gun Makers of East Fork NC $22.50 plus $2.85 for First Class mail.
Gillespie butt plate from: top, rear, side
The Gillespie butt plate measurements are: length of top is 3 7/8" and height is 4 5/16", the butt width is 1 7/16". The brass is $22.95 and steel is $20.95 plus s/h.
