   As much as I enjoy making exploded parts views and technical drawings I sometimes need a break, and line drawing is the way I do that. I occasionally get requests for these drawings and so I have assembled them here for anyone who might be interested.
   Thanks to those who provide information and photos to work from.
I credit my sources for each drawing. Sometimes it is a full view photo of the original gun and sometimes it is a detail image sent to me so I can flesh out a particular detail. I try to make the drawings as accurate as I can.
