Sorry Jim, I've been bouncing around between my many jobs again. Unfortunately we won't be able to send it to you. Not would it be difficult to send because of its size and weight, but becuase it is a loan item, it is not allowed to leave the property. Would it help it took several detailed photos and measurments and sent them on a CD?

Yes, thanks Karen, that would be a great start!  As detailed measurements and photos as you can.

I've got some good news for you Jim. One of my volunteers stopped in for a chat today and metioned he was going to start painting our .50 cal. When I told him about our discussion he offered to do a detailed scale drawing of it. Turns out he's got an engineering background and is famlier with drawing up blue prints! It may take him a  few weeks, but I should be able to send you a nice drawing, with measurements, in a few weeks!

Just a curious thought about the Batfish gun, it looks more like a .30 Cal and not a .50 Cal.. I am sure that there are .50 Cal drawings online if you would like to look.

It's a bastard repro.  .50 breach with a 30 barrel.  Not sure who made it.

Mostly what we have is a want-to-be .30 browning 1919A4-ish (barrel shroud, body and rear hand grip).  Originally that would be mostly correct as the .30 browning was the load out.  Later they were switched to spade handle gripped ANM2 .50 cals.  The ANM2 is the aircraft version with the air cooled vented shrouds.
