Looking for the furniture to this Jaeger

I bought this original Jaeger rifle a couple years ago. The gentleman that I had purchased the rifle from had already sold off the original brass parts from it but had a set of castings made from the originals, which I was able to use to have it restored. I would love to find the original brass parts from this gun to return it to it's original condition. Thanks!

1800's era Native American knife and scabbard.

1800's era Native American knife and scabbard. The spear shaped double edged blade is a shape favored by peoples of the Great Lakes Region. It measures 11-1/2" overall. It retains a very sharp edge. The knife overall measures 11-1/2" with a 6-1/2" gray, unmarked blade. The blade has seen use but no abuse. There are no cracks, active rust, edge chips or bends. The hardwood handle is round and tapered and likely the original handle to a tool of some sort. It has an iron ferrule. The grip has no cracks and is snug to the blade. The symmetrical leather scabbard has been dyed black and made to be hung around the neck by means of a rawhide strip. Again, this was the fashion widely used by Indians of northern New York State / south eastern Canada. The knife is carried deep in the scabbard with just the end of the handle showing. The scabbards from this area are often decorated with bead work. This one is plane and unadorned. The scabbard is dry and stiff and has taken on the shape of the knife. There are areas where the twine stitching is broken but nothing too significant. Reference photo from "Early Knives & Beaded Sheaths of the American Frontier" by John Baldwin. This piece dates to the 1800's. It is from an older collection assembled in the 1920's-30's.

Turkish decorative antique pistol

Decorative Turkish pistol. Not a reproduction. The barrel is not drilled for a touch hole and it is not substantial at the breech so it was never made to fire. The lock is flimsy and not made to work but will go to full and half cock.There are really nice silver wire work inlays and mother of pearl translucent inlays. There are profuse silver inlays in the barrel and lock. It is really elaborate and good quality. Cast brass mounts. Two pictures does not do it justice, more available. The barrel is 8.5 long with about an half inch bore. The reason I am posting this is because of the extensive wire work in the stock and silver inlays in the barrel and furniture.
