    Default Fully dimensioned firearm prints.

    I知 looking for a website I can get fully dimensioned prints of various firearms. Newly divorced and I知 wanting to decorate a little. A few years ago I found a thread on here that had a link to a site that had a ton of them. Everything from old muzzle loaders to modern machine guns and it was around $30 for a yearly membership but of course I have no idea what the site was called. I think it would be awesome to put some on my wall. Thanks everyone!

    The homegunsmith.com forum has a library section. It is not very active but on the first page of the library there was a print. I assume if you go back more pages you would find more. There are a lot of gun builds discussed, i assume at least some of drawings. Membership there allows more areas to be viewed.

    I've seen the site the OP is asking about. Even downloaded copies of original Tommy Gun prints. Because I could!
    Unfortunately, the link is saved on a computer I haven't seen since March and have no idea when I'll see it again.
    I probably did see it here, at least year ago, maybe two.

    Dunno if the OP is dumb or just friggen lazy, because a two second search on the engine of choice will find you a TON of prints, ranging from new to old as dirt.

    No need to worry about ulterior motives. Look at all the weenies out there that have pictures of naked women, but still can't get any! LOL!

    Lol sorry I bothered you from your keyboard battle. I was looking for a website I previously found, I wasn稚 looking for individual prints on 300 different websites. I知 fully capable of spending 20hrs a day finding a few prints but I don稚 have time for that if you do awesome. For everyone else I think it was homegunsmith

    While over there you could do a lot worse than to invest a few minutes reading their "How not to introduce yourself" thread.

    It may shed some light on why you got treated like you did.

    One thing you need to note regarding internet plans is they are not likely manufacturers' plans; rather most likely they are made from measured samples, and probably only one sample. Tolerancing will be up to you.

    If the OP's intention is really wall hanging decoration, tolerances and exact dimensions are not that important as clean looking and sort of realistic.

    If you are just looking to craft realistic looking replicas to hang on the wall you don't need dimensioned prints.

    In the age of electronics a lot can be done with good clear side photographs. It is easy to grab such a photo off the net and add it as a layer in a 2D drawing program. Then simply trace over the image and read the dimensions. In the good old days many times I picked dimensions off of photographs using draftsman's dividers and then scaled a drawing on paper for models I wanted to carve or otherwise make. There are many known dimensions such as barrel length for historical arms and everything else can be scaled from that.

    的van the Troll.

    The M16 and M14 prints are OK, though he痴 missing a lot on magazines. There痴 a lot on there that痴 either missing or flat out wrong for the lesser known firearms like the Sten.

    The home gunsmith or whatever that one is is... less than adequate. A print with tolerances is a few thousand times more valuable than some guy who made a print using a set of calipers and the real thing.
