Does anyone happen to have a template for the bowcaster body/stock so I can cut one?

That's probably the closest you will get. There are also the scans of the bowcaster from the Star Wars Chronicles book, but those are pretty low res.

On that drawing ignore everything but the crossbow itself. Look to the chronicles photos and other pics of BC in the archive to determine what was used for the greeblies, scopes, etc.

The actual crossbow used was a Horton Magnum, a metal crossbow made in Wales in the 70's.

The Horton Safari Magnum, a fiberglass crossbow based on the Magnum, is a popular base for the bowcaster and frequently turns up on eBay for about $150.00

The Horton Magnum is very hard to find. I know of only one person who has located one.
