Where to get a matchlock musket

Does anyone know where I could get a matchlock musket outside of a custom gunsmith? The only ones I can find are made in India and don't really have a good reputation, and a kit from the rifle shoppe but I've heard some pretty negative things about that company.

Saw these in a search, have not dealt with either company. I'm not that far into BP yet.

I've heard stories of the rifle shoppe sometimes taking years to send you your product, For that time I might as well just go to a custom gun maker and get a better gun.

Dixie Gun Works used to carry a quality-made matchlock. Might check there.

I'd bet Colin could hook you up with something custom faster than years:

And I just thought some pictures of one would spice up the thread:
