You can get the Kuhnhausen book(s) direct from the publisher at http://www.gunbooks.com and from Brownells, Midway, or Amazon.

You guys answered my question. Thanks for the link. And is that the book to get or would you recommend another? Is the second version worth the extra money?
Wanna sell your copy? :)

I'm curious about the 2nd too.

I might sell mine. It's loaned out now, let me get it back and check thru it again. As I remember, I didn't find a lot of info I hadn't found online.

Have both. In my fairly valueless opinion, they are both well worth the money. Of course there may be other books that serve the purpose and it's not like these are 100% perfect but they cover more than I could have imagined.

I don't know enough to help you, but that book by Jerry K. has tool lists for basic work to adjusting the rails and everyting in between.

Does anyone have anymore information on the book by Jerry K. ?
Or any other good 1911 gunsmithing books?


Here's volume 1 and 2

Sorry! New here, and didn't notice that a second page had started and answered your question. These books have a wealth of basic knowledge, but some recent 1911 pros have expanded that to include many tweaks. If, like me, your still trying to digest the 1911 platform you'll find these shop manuals very helpful.

My eyesight isn't THAT bad, but as I get more and more gray, as my bones make more noise when I move, I have to use a miners headlamp for better lighting to see stuff with. Same goes with small things.

Mick was right, what a drag it is getting old!
