Hi All,

 

 

Trying to find an owner of a Owen who is willing to work with me to make accurate drawings of the Owen. I have access to Trigger group , magazines , Butt and ancillary pieces . Also I have a drawing of the receiver but I am not sure it is 100% accurate. 

Currently learning Fusion 360 so plan to make this the project for learning a new CAD program.

 

Any help is appreciated !

Hi,

 

Where did you find your "Owen" receiver print ? I have one as well but it may be the same as yours. Spare parts do come up from time to time but they aren't getting cheap.

 

All the best,

HI Babyface,

 

Mine  I found on the net . Seems correct but I wanted to check with someone who had one. Mostly how the wall is weld in and how the flares on either end are constructed Also the welding around the mag well. My drawing is marked "Owen Mk II Model 1943 Receiver" . Did see some spares during the week on GB. Barrel went for about $100 ,Wooden Butt $50 and bolt assembly about $660.

 

I don't want to own the parts . Would be happy if someone would get their gun scanned with 3D and some high detailed photos. Can import photos but that isn't as accurate.
