That burnt stock look is really appealing. I have a Pennsylvania 36 cal cap and ball original (Circa 1840’s) that at some point was treated to a tiger stripe look by wrapping rope around the stock and burned in the manner you are describing. That rifle is still a shooter and is the most asked about rifle displayed prominently above the mantle of my fireplace. The lock mechanism is silver and the stock has several flush elongated brass diamond plates as well as a silver butt plate. This came from my grandfather’s collection of antique rifles after he passed them on to me.
