Ricki-

I am already in process of reproducing the 1917A1 ladder and other related parts. It is not going to be ready before end of summer and I can't promise it for sure by then, but soon after at most. Sorry I can't lend out an original, and I do not know if anyone has drawings. Mine will be exact in every detail and equal to or better than the original. If you want to make your own, I wish you the best. These things are totally cool!

Ricki,

Did you ever consider trying to contact Colt ?
Or maybe via the Freedom Of Information Act. I know the Army FOIA allowed a gentleman to publish a book with the M1 Garand blueprints.

RICKI-

I'd love to be of help. I do not have drawings or know who might. My machinist has my original and I will not see it back for a while. My guess is that you want to make your own rather than buy a repro. If so, then I should be happy to help when I am in a position to do so. Sure, I am sensitive to competition at this point, and I know I have some already, but I am not worried about you. Since you are a Veteran and have already done much to serve us all, I am more than willing to be of service in return. Keep in touch with me via e-mail at [email protected] and let's see what we can do. :)
