I know Front Rank does, but they are too hefty for my needs. Anyone else?

Crann Tara has a line of exquisite Gardes Francais in several different poses. Highly recommended.

Crann Tara does make great Gardes Francaises, but I'm looking for the mounted Mousquetaires de la Garde, with soubreveste.

I'm sure that they are on Graham's to do list. I might try to give them a go as conversions and see what I can do.

Foundry's "Casting Room" subsidiary does for both WSS & SYW:

As memory serves, they are smaller than FR, but still a bit on the larger side.

I quite like the WSS minis. Slightly rough, but with character. Also one of the few places to get skirmishy attacking/advancing poses for this era. I'm using the WSS French as Spanish in the New World.

I can't vouch for the SYW minis. The pics are irritatingly small, but even so, some look a bit wonky to me.

IMO, CRM are very much a mixed bag. Which I guess is why they aren't branded as Foundry.
