Question gun stock carving

Well, I'm a total beginner in all this so I'd like to ask for some advice.
I'll need to copy long gun stock about 47x6x2 - will need 5-10 Birch or Walnut copies.
What would be my best approach to all this?
- I could not find any place online to order it - so it has to be copied from the original I've got
- is it worth buying equipment and what is better (some say Terrco, some say Radarcarve etc.)
- would I be able to find 47x6x2 gunstock blanks - I shopped around and it looks like most of them are much smaller
- maybe someone could reccomend some place willing to make them for me

Thank you! There is no contact info on the site.
However this was one approach. I'd like to hear whether I should go ahead and do it myself.
