It looks like I'll be getting my first 1911 fairly soon, so I want to know what are some good books concerning the 1911 in terms of disassembly, parts, operation, gun smithing and even customization.

Thanks,

Kuhnhausen's 2 books on the 1911 are very good and have plenty of ordnance specs and detailed drawings of the internal workings of the 1911. Plenty of fitting, smithing, and accuracy information is provided. I ordered mine from here:

Wilson has a good book that you can get from http://www.wilsoncombat.com

Patrick Sweeny has a good book on the 1911, I don't have an URL for his book however. It was/is published by the Gun Digest people.

Hallock and Layne Simpson also have good books on the 1911. Also, the G.I. mnaual is a helpful reference, also.

The Wilson book is actually a booklet, entitled "Wilson Combat 1911 Auto Maintenance Manual." It's an excellent manual for the novice as it's full of colored photos and basic step-by-step instructions. It runs about $11 and is also available from Midway and Brownell's.
