Can anyone point me in the direction of exploded view drawings of a Colt Lightning Slide Action Medium Frame carbine in .32-20, and a Joslyn M1862 carbine in .52 rimfire?

A friend of mine has come into possession of these, and they have seen some rough use and are missing various parts.  He is a skilled machinist and accomplished hobby gunsmith, so he'll be able to make new parts if he can only see what they should look like and get some critical dimensions.

If any of You own one of the above carbines and would be willing to take it apart and photograph and measure the parts, that would also be most helpful.

I don't think he has an exploded view. But Doc Shepard has a couple good videos on the Joslyn.

There used to be a blowup or instructions for the takedown of an AWA Lightening on Maurader's website. There are subtle differences among the Uberti's, Pedersoli's and the AWA but the instructions should give you enough to work with.
