    Without seeing pictures, I think your best option would be to have the old stock repaired. You won't find a piece of wood to match what belongs on that gun for what a good wood man will charge for a repair - much less having a new piece fitted. Why do you assume your gun originally had a single trigger? Is it marked on the trigger plate somewhere? Monograms are hard to find in any condition and I think you would do a dis-service to gun by having a sub-par piece of wood fitted to it, not to mention the fact that you'd most likely be disappointed with the finished product. I have several guns laying around waiting for the appropriate timing (when I save up the money) to have them repaired properly. Don't get in a hurry and you'll be happier with the end result.
