Does anyone have lower drawings for inch-FAL?

I'm developing a 2-stage trigger for the FAL. I own a metric lower and have simply measured pin hole locations and pin diameters off the parts that I have. I'd like to be able to come up with a solution that would fit both metric and inch with minimum modifications, but have not found a cheap inch pattern lower to buy.

Of course an even cheaper solution is if someone has CAD or drawings, or at least good dimensions.

I'm after the hole locations and spacing for the trigger, hammer, and change lever.

I'm also after the pin diameters for the trigger and hammer.

Thanks,

Art

Sorry, it won't let me edit the title on the OP, but I am after LOWER drawings, not upper.

That said, I just got off the phone with someone who thinks the inch and metric lowers are the same. Can someone confirm this? I figured at least the 4mm and 5mm trigger and hammer pins were 5/32 and 3/16".

Do the triggers and hammers actually interchange?

axle hole diameter is different between FAL & L1A1. Center of hole is same. No fire control parts will interchange without modification.

I have an Enfield print for the housing, trigger mechanism.

e-mail me.
