Would you be willing to take requests for diagrams?
July 24, 2007, 12:36 AM
Sure would, but I've realized exploded diagrams are surprisingly hard to come by for some pistols. What did you have in mind? I'm trying to cover what the most frequent "newbie" guns are, but suggestions are always welcomed.
July 24, 2007, 09:39 AM
Very nice. Good work. BHP would be nice. :)
July 24, 2007, 10:39 AM
I was looking for a Springfield XD, if you have the time.
July 24, 2007, 10:42 AM
Sure thing Crew, but I'm having a real hard time finding an XD Exploded view. If you find one, let me know and I'll get it done for you.
Hi-Power, As requested. Sorry for the lesser quality, but it's the best I could find.
July 24, 2007, 07:27 PM
Thanks for taking the time to do this, Chrome. The CZ-75 is saved to my hard drive.
And welcome to the High Road.
July 24, 2007, 08:36 PM
I've been looking all afternoon and I see what you mean about not being able to find a diagram of an XD. Anyway, I just thought it would be something nice to have but it's not a necessity.
July 24, 2007, 09:44 PM
Hi-Power, As requested Thanks.
July 24, 2007, 09:47 PM
What a great idea! A fantastic contribution to the group. Maybe all of these should go in a Sticky for permanent reference. Just ordered a CZ75. This will be nice. Thanks for your efforts. I'll try to locate an XD as well.
July 24, 2007, 09:53 PM
If you go to http://www.springfield-armory.com/xd.php and download the manual, it is on page 15 of the pdf file. Hope this helps.
July 24, 2007, 10:02 PM
Where are you looking for the schematics?
Have you tried Numrich (http://www.e-gunparts.com/dept.asp#TheSs)
And Steve's Pages (http://stevespages.com/page7a.htm)
These are really good for old eyes
Thanks for the effort
July 24, 2007, 10:03 PM
Thank you for your time and sharing with us all.

July 24, 2007, 10:30 PM
Hello and thank you, sir, for your High Road Approach in providing this information. It is appreciated.
July 24, 2007, 10:32 PM
Yeah joab, I've checked both of those sites. Neither has the XD diagram.
FMNNC, I did see the manual and have that printed out in front of me. The only bad part is there is no parts list with it. I've got an e-mail sent to SA asking about it, so we will see what they can come up with.
July 24, 2007, 10:34 PM
For some reason they sell some and provide others for free
I see you made the sticky, congratulations
July 24, 2007, 10:55 PM
The parts list was on page 14 of the downloaded pdf file
July 24, 2007, 11:00 PM
Haha, my adobe was set to only show half the page. I'll get that XD done up tomorrow.
July 25, 2007, 01:05 AM
Thanks guys, I never even thought about the manual. :banghead: I feel like an idiot sometimes.
Chrome, thank you for you work and congratulations on the sticky.
July 25, 2007, 02:52 AM
I've learned quite a bit from THR. Doing this is the least I can do to give something back.
July 25, 2007, 08:27 PM
Springfield Armory XD-9 As requested. This covers the Tactical, Service, and Compact versions (the only difference mechanically is the recoil spring assembly).
I'm thinking S&W M&P next. Anybody else got another suggestion?
July 25, 2007, 09:49 PM
Chrome, you are an officer and a gentleman. Thank you very much.
July 25, 2007, 11:27 PM
Here is another one you might get some use out of brashboy.
Here is a Ruger P95. I apologize in advance for it's poor quality.
August 2, 2007, 06:10 PM
Where is the Glock diagram that you first saw. I might be interested in that one.
August 2, 2007, 06:53 PM
Sadly it's been taken down for reasons unknown. I will send you a PM with it. Please note it is not my work though.
August 4, 2007, 12:27 PM
Does anyone know if there is one for HK USP(fullsize and/or compact) and for Sig Sauer P-series?
August 4, 2007, 01:18 PM
There isn't, but I'll see if I can't make one.
August 4, 2007, 04:08 PM
August 5, 2007, 03:34 AM
Anyone have a diagram for the Sig Sauer P226?
August 5, 2007, 12:17 PM
Here is the Sig P230 and P226.
**EDITED FOR USP-C**
August 5, 2007, 04:53 PM
The S&W M&P .45 would be great and a SW 1911. The SW1911 has a firing pin safety and external extractor.
Thank you for what you are doing.....
August 6, 2007, 01:04 AM
As long as you're taking requests--
Can you find one for the 1903 Colt? I don't know if the 1908 differs or not.
August 6, 2007, 04:58 AM
You wouldnt happen to make Rifle Diagrams... would you? :D
August 6, 2007, 05:12 AM
Chrome, excellent work - THANK YOU!
Hopefully this will help with future work - Brownells has a plethora of diagrams found here - http://www.brownells.com/aspx/NS/schematics/SchemMFG.aspx
August 6, 2007, 03:37 PM
Thank You once again Chrome!
August 6, 2007, 05:44 PM
I'm having a difficult time locating a parts diagram for a 1903 Colt. You wouldn't know where to find one, would you?
August 7, 2007, 11:24 AM
Sorry, no--it's a very new piece for me, so I haven't done a lot of digging, yet.
August 9, 2007, 01:56 AM
okay, so now I have this awesome CZ-52 with no books or know-how... you wouldnt happen to have a diagram of a CZ-52, would ya?
August 9, 2007, 03:45 AM
HK P2000 and P2000sk if possible.
August 21, 2007, 08:15 AM
A Walther P9 would be nice.
September 3, 2007, 06:58 PM
Chrome, I'm amazed at the quality. You're bound to get backlogged with requests. I downloaded a S&W revolver drawing with an exploded view of the components. But the drawing was so poor it is practically useless. I couldn't read the numbers that correspond to the part. Here I am with two S&W 625s without a decent drawing of an exploded view of the parts. Any possibility?
September 3, 2007, 08:04 PM
These exploded diagrams might make a great idea to be sold on cd for IBM and MAC users. A part time job opportunity???????
September 3, 2007, 08:19 PM
I am not making the exploded diagrams, only coloring them. I am pulling the images off of the net. Most are factory diagrams that come from the owner's manuals. I take no credit for making the diagram.
All I am doing is adding the color coding. Me selling them on a disc would be unethical and illegal.
However, you may feel free to download them and use them for personal use as it should fall under the "fair use" law.
PS. Yes, I've gotten many PM's from users and have a list here that includes in order: S&W M&P9, Taurus 24/7, Ruger Mark II, Walther P-38, CZ-52, HK P2000, and a Walther P9 (maybe he meant a P5?)
I am in my senior year of a Medical Technology program at WVU so my time is severely limited now that school has started back up, but I am still working on them. I hope to have one or two done by this weekend.
September 4, 2007, 07:49 PM
Chrome, I would not suggest anyone break the law. Businesses need to check with lawyers to see what is legal & what is not. I'm not in any legal field. That said.... when I go to sporting goods stores, I see "books" that are for sale that have schematics in them and I can buy parts books on line that have schematics in them (http://www.e-gunparts.com/ordercatalog.asp). Brownell's schematics (at least some if not all) are with permission.
AGAIN....thanks for what you have done so far and for what ever help you offer in the future
October 12, 2007, 02:03 AM
Big props to you, Chrome! Upon reading the first post I thought "I hope I end up seeing one for the XD 9mm before the last page!" Saved for future reference!
October 20, 2007, 05:37 AM
nice work chrome. Can you also pm me a glock diagram? tnx
October 24, 2007, 01:48 PM
Wow this is really cool. Perhaps if you get the chance you can make one for the Ruger SR9
November 2, 2007, 09:40 PM
November 2, 2007, 11:10 PM
No problem guys. Sorry for slacking lately. Classes end for me in two weeks and I will begin my clinical rotation. When that starts, my evenings should be more free and I can get some more done.
S&W M&P9, Taurus 24/7, Ruger Mark II/III, Walther P-38, CZ-52, HK P2000, HK P7, Glock 17 and a Walther P5. Anything I missed you guys wanna see?
November 10, 2007, 10:33 PM
Glock 19 please. Thank you!
November 18, 2007, 04:22 AM
These all rock. I am looking forward to the M&P diagram. A Makarov pistol could be cool too.
If you'll go to brownells.com and, on the Home page, scroll down completely to the bottom of the page. There are a bunch of links down there below a wide, brown line. One of them is <Schematics>. Click on it and you are presented with a bunch of Manufacturer's logos. Click the one you want and they will display the schematics that they have for the guns made by that manufacturer. They're PDFs @ $.99 each. I just got six of them, which they deliver via email with a two-day delay. The schematic includes the exploded diagram, parts list with prices, and the accessories that Brownell's carries for the specific firearm. Pretty cool.
July 3, 2008, 09:54 AM
When you get a chance...
July 9, 2008, 07:16 AM
Chrome - U disappeared from my site lately :P
July 9, 2008, 07:39 AM
I've disappeared from a lot of sites lately Shipwreck. The new job is taking a lot more out of me than I anticipated. I'll see if I can't get that done for you leper.
July 11, 2008, 05:17 PM
Thanks for that XD pic a few pages back. I appreciated the color diagram showing the lube points since I'm a complete newbie when it comes to these things.
Requesting a S&W Sigma 9VE if possible.. Thanks, these are great!
September 15, 2008, 10:45 PM
If anyone needs Sig diagrams then shoot me a message. I have all of the p22x series and the sigpros as well as the 55x series. And they are all decent PDFs!
October 1, 2008, 11:03 PM
Outstanding work Chrome.
Seems you have a lot of resources.
I've looked high and low for a FULL take down layout for my S&W M&P .40. Newbie gun but nothing out there. If you know of anything please get me a quick detail.
October 13, 2008, 02:06 AM
Where could I find cutaways of AR15 and AK/AKM rifles?
November 23, 2008, 01:36 PM
I'll tag along on this one, as I'm interested in the Ruger MKII. :) Thanks for your hard work, Chrome!
The picture isn't there for the Beretta 92FS (post number 6) anyone have one of those someone that I could see?
May 20, 2009, 10:46 PM
Hey all, I have been looking for an exploded diagram for the FNP-45 all over the internet. I see here on the fourth page that there is one for the 9 and 40, but I really need the one for the 45. Me thinking I could easily take it apart and put back together again needs some help, Thanks.
May 20, 2009, 11:58 PM
one more thing..how would i go about ordering one of those parts if say I lost one. Would I have to go through FN directly or through an dealer?
Stephen A. Camp
May 21, 2009, 12:28 AM
Hello. I think you can contact FN USA and have the part mailed:
July 5, 2009, 01:42 PM
You can find it at Midway USA.
July 22, 2009, 05:24 PM
here's a CZ 75B. directly from CZ itself.
January 24, 2010, 07:31 PM
I don't know if Mr. Chrome is around but I am sorta new here and wanted to tell him I was born and raised in WVa in the coalfields south of Bluefield...I left 25 years ago when the mines all closed. I live in SC now. Like all good residents of Columbia,SC I own a FNP 45 ACP...They make them across town from where I live as well as 70% of all small arms the US military uses. Does anyone have a schematic for the FNP .45 ACP ?
February 3, 2010, 03:20 PM
I can't see a diagram for the PT111, though it's mentioned.
Is there an organized place to see all of Chrome's diagrams together?
February 26, 2010, 04:24 PM
I have been looking everywhere with no luck. How about a:
S&W Walther PPK/S .380
March 22, 2010, 04:24 PM
Hey, seeing all the nice blow ups! Just wondering if u can find one for a S&W MP pro 9mm. I just went to the big gun show in MN last weekend and purchased my first hand gun. Less than 48 hrs into it, breakin is completed and about 100+ round run perfectly through it:) Nothin like a new gun!!!
March 28, 2010, 11:56 PM
Damn, I just tried to color code a Sigma but im not that computer inclined. Chrome, big props to you man. Good Luck
September 28, 2010, 12:42 AM
Chrome, you're doing one Hell of a job, good luck with your education!
If you have time, I'd like a diagram for a Beretta 1935 .32 auto, I know its pretty simple, but it would help out!
Thanks again Chrome;)
October 22, 2010, 01:26 AM
S & W 1911 have no part's manuals for their guns if someone has one please post it I will appreciate it.
November 14, 2010, 10:01 PM
I would like a good S&W M 19 diagram please.
December 1, 2010, 05:22 PM
I wish I wasn't color blind. It sounds like a great idea though for you shooters that can see his colors.such is life.
At least the BG's clothing colors don't matter much. I just aim at the moving target.
January 17, 2013, 10:34 AM
Is there any way to store some of these on THR owned server? Many of the links are no longer active.
April 24, 2013, 08:13 PM
I have a PDF file for this, however, the doc is 10MB and the limit is 4.88. Any suggestions?
