Probably legally protected info not in public domain.

I was fearing that but most other designs, even current service rifles are public available to view

I didn't get blue prints with measurements but I spent over $100 on training posters with detailed diagrams of internals and the functionality of the rifle

Have you checked over on the weapons guild? If anyone has them, it will be them

The actual prints have never been released to the public according to a friend who works at BSA or something in England. However I did get posters that show all the internals and diagrams of how the rifle works which is really the only thing I needed

Anyone know someone who has a l85 or the semi auto version they imported before the ban, I have a few questions, I would appreciate any help.

I'm also interested in buying parts if anyone has some

For now Going to use a full metal air soft as a chassis for a 9mm or 223 carbine

So I'll need a host gun that will fit inside the receiver

I'm thinking the SU16 may work

Will be using a Springfield 187 for the host gun

As in the tube magazine fed, .22LR semi-auto Springfield 187 from early 1960s?


Look forward to seeing and hearing more.

Update: received the rifle and everything should fit fine, gotta modify a few of the airsoft parts I'm going to use to keep the handguards on Still have to design a trigger system.

Had to take off the hand guard front cap off to put the mag tube, will dremel the front cap and put it back on
