    Officers ACP Blueprints

    A friend of ours has been working on creating a set of prints for the Colt Officer's ACP. Which is quite a bit more complicated than you may first think.

    What he would like to do is to try to get a feel for whether or not there's any interest in buying a set of blueprints (which, of course, are not really "blueprints") of the pistol and, if so, what people would prefer for a size format, and what they might be willing to pay. The set of scanned Ordnance Department drawings that Nicolaus sells are on American legal size paper -- 8-1/2" x 14". Another set, sold by a company (or guy) under the name Western Sky Publishing was printed on what we call "ledger" paper -- 11" x 17" (two letter size sheets). We don't recall what Western Sky charged for that set, and they (he?) appear to be out of business now, so we can't check. Nicolaus is currently charging $35 for his.

    What do you think? What would something like this be worth to you? And what size would you like it printed in?

    As a teaser, here's an Officer's ACP hammer:

    Too many people miss the silver lining because they're expecting gold.
