    hope u can help thanks Bill

    • Not sure if we ever connected. I have Savage 99 pdf files I can send you. I know that I have the hard copies somewhere, but am reluctant to part with them.

  4. My very best congratulations for this great work! I was very surprised and mostful happy to find it on the Net! It gives me so much information about lost or missing parts especially for russian machineguns!I dont speak or can read russian but i can read a technical drawing and there are a lot of helpful drawings!Most times i made some parts copied from pics or loaned ones cause spare parts for some gun are very rare here in germany.
    Best regards

  5. Can anyone help? I’m looking for the schematics for a lakefield mossberg. I’m trying to repair the trigger assembly. I think there’s a piece missing. I can reconstruct if there’s any photos and info. The marks on the barrel indicate it’s a mark III semi-auto .22. Lakefield mossberg.

  6. Need a breakdown on a trigger assembly. Lakefield mossberg .22 semi auto. MarkIII. I have trigger safety problems on the rifle.
