lots of luck there. the paper drawings available on ebay are copies from the RIA and include notations for "some" metal data (heat treatment, etc), are sometimes hard to read, but are generally good for what the set contains. however, the publication is not inclusive of all parts of the carbine. included are bolts, firing pins, etc. barrels, sears, triggers, etc are excluded research is hard because humpers with machine tools are on the loose.
