Hi All,
 
Today I was blessed to be able to purchase a MINT, 22 year old, Belgium made Browning BAR in .270 Win. caliber. This gun is in absolute immaculate condition and has only been fired 10 times by the original owner. This gun has a beautiful wood on it and is now the cream of the crop in my gun safe.
 
In 1985 I purchased a new Weatherby Vanguard VGX Deluxe and at the time of purchase I bought a set of gun chaps to keep on the gun to protect the wood. I still use them today on this rifle. They were made by a company by the name of "Kane".  Back then you could get them for about any gun on the market.  Today I can't find anything on the net' about them.
 
I really would like to find a set for this Browning BAR. Does anyone have any idea of where I might can find a set made by Kane or any other company? I really appreciate any help that any of you might could share with me.
 
Thanks a bunch!

If it is tourist season, why can't we shoot them?

Your local cowboy shooter may be able to hook you up with somebody who would make them.

I had a set of chaps for a Rem. 700 once.  I haven't seen those on the market for several years.  Once gun-dipping became popular, I think those things kinda lost their niche.  You may be able to find a 'universal' gun chap-like thing from one of the large online hunting sites.

 I reckon you could go synthetic and save the wood:
