There are some makers in Rajasthan involved in this sort of thing (manufacture of replicas/ muzzle loaders) - I believe based in Jodhpur & Udaipur...

In Delhi a few Gun Dealers do export replicas to the US & Canada.

Indian, in Rajasthan
Rajasthan Armory
Udaipur Gun Works are the few who make replica ML.
In India these are Considered as Replica Guns and they are not intended to fire a live charge Mostly for a display purpose.
For a Functional ML Gun we still need a AL in India.
Most of the Stores in Udaipur, jodhpur and Adjoining MP areas are having stocks of ML guns as they are still very popular among Farmer Community.

From what I have heard, these are sold as non-firing replicas in India.
After being imported, they are made ready to fire by the importers.
