Default WANTED: M1 Garand Pic and Specs. Please read.

A friend of mine is making a M1 Garand 1:1 scale Model from scratch, and he needed my help getting the dimensions. I Know that a few people on this forum actually have an M1 Garand, and might be willing to help out(?). So, Reasons stated, here's what we need:

1. Hi Resolution Left, Right, Top and bottom pictures. Bolt Closed. (the larger and clearer, the better).
2. Barrel dimensions (Diameter, length)
3. Trigger dimensions
4. Front sight dimensions
5. Rear sight dimensions
6. Over all dimensions ( Length, Width, Hight)
7. Any detail pics you can provide (Butt stock, sling loops, En Bloc clips, ect.)

If any one can take the time to get those to me it would be greatly appreciated!
