Firearm scope/site mounting rail options.

I hope someone can lead me in the right direction. I am looking for diagrams preferrably or some other clear explanation of the cross section of different mounting systems for handguns. The Weaver mount is one example. I cannot find a cross section with dimensions anywhere. I have googled but came up empty. I am CONFIDENT some of you could educate me on this. Thanks for your help.

A couple of suggestions:
First, the Picatinny mount supposedly duplicates Weaver mount specifications. See this page for a diagram of the Picatinny profile.
Also note that Weaver is still in business, so perhaps it would be worth dropping a note to them. Their web site is here.

One more thing in case I have misunderstood your question - if you are looking for dimensions and cross sections of the mounts themselves, rather than the rails, that is something that I have been looking for everywhere, and so far I've come up empty-handed. So if that's what you're looking for, and you find it, please point me in the right direction...

"...cross sections of the mounts themselves"
Yea. Whether the receiver on the scope or other sighting instrument or the rail on the handgun. But I am sure if I found either item it would have both as 1 drawing. I see the Weaver seems the most popular.
