GunBroker and a few other sites out there are always having auctions for parts and accessories ranging through just about every caliber available, etc.

Depending on how elaborate that you would like to go with that rifle, you could also Google search a bit for custom stock builders in or around your area.

I know that Stevens Model 200s are one of the cheapest rifles that you can buy, but I currently have a beautiful black walnut log that recently broke out of one of our trees back during that heavy snow that we got that I am saving up for to have a custom stock made for it to replace that cheap synthetic stock that came on it.

Realizing that not everybody has access to a good cut of wood, custom builders 99 out of 100 times keep their own in stock.

Guess it all just depends on how you want to skin that cat...

Also, that's a great piece of steel that you have there.  

I would have no hesitations with dropping that barrel off with a gunsmith for a total overhaul and refurbishment and going fully custom with it.

That is a passed down heirloom and depending on how well the steel was taken care of, could last another few hundred years if kept in the right hands!

 I've got a friend whose been swapping out his cheap factory synthetics for Boyd's.  NICE stocks that,if you watch their web site,can be had for cheaper than $74.99.

+1 for Boyd's if you are looking for utility and value. They make a pretty nice stock and for <$100 it going to be tuff to beat. If you want an original try googling Bob's gun parts or gun stocks. That guys site usually has a bunch of stocks.
