    No manufacturer is going to provide the world with their drawings.

    You have to reverse engineer drawings from a sample.

    I suggest a much easier gun project than a revolver.

    I find that stuff, like Castrol stick gets fused with saw cuttings onto the rollers in a hard crust making the blade track weird.

    Most remnant structural steel you would find in these parts is plain old A36 or grade 50 version of that, A992.
