    "The M1911 Complete Owners Guide" and "The M1911 Complete Assembly Guide" bith by Walt Kuleck are also very good and are more directed to "users" rather than woud-be gunsmiths. They are available at www.scott-duff.com for about $30 each.

    The best general information is available on the web.

    Kuhnhausen's book makes all other books superfluous.
