I find such things for sale in the 1911 ALFA and 1939 Stoeger catalogs. Sold in the industrialized world as novelties and decorators, there was still a market for muzzleloaders in colonial lands.

One period writer said that tribal smiths had found that the tubular steel steering column out of a scrapped Vauxhall made an adequate musket barrel with "bore approximating arquebus."
