I've made several by cad'ing out my 165# Peter Wright and printing a set of drawings at various reductions; choosing the one I liked and cutting it out and gluing it to a piece of 1/8" thick plastic and cutting and filing it to the line with a bit of draft.  Then using petrobond oil sand I rammed up one side and pressed the parting powdered piece into the parting powdered surface and rammed the other side, then carved out two sprues and a vent using drill bits----placed so that the Vent mad a stud to hook in a belt hole and the two sprues were cross drilled after pouring to hold a rod for the belt to loop around.

I cast a handful of these in silver back when it was US$5 an ounce.  I think I may still even have one and the plastic anvil piece for the mold. (this was back in the early 90's...)
