Hi Joe, This book, "Fabrication of Small Arms,Ord. Memoranda #22", has drawings at the back illustrating various steam driven machines used for manufacturing various parts, the lathe for turning stocks,barrel rolls, etc. There are illustrations with dimensions for arms chests. There is sections covering the Colt and Smith & Wesson Army revolvers, with details covering their inspection at the Armory after being received from their respective manufacturers. Just a wealth of useful information. My book is a soft cover reprinted by Benchmark Publishing Co., Glendale, NY. Let me know how you do. Regards, Ken
