    Use Sam's "transfer wax" to give the part a light coating of wax, then lay tape over the part to pick up the wax and give you the outline.
    You could possibly use graphite or chalk to "dust" the piece and then pick up the image with clear tape.

    What i often do is make a smoke pull of the area and then trace the outline on a piece of tracing paper. I then scan it into my computor and put the different scans together to look like a flat stretchout of the gun this way i always have a full size template to work from. I can also blow up and print sections for drawing layouts

    Second smoke pull method, and when its just to troublesome, the easiest way is to just draw directly on the item!
