    I'm really starting to get the 1911 bug these days and want to know what
    tuning/repair books are considered good to have in my library.

    I'm also interested in learning how to build my own.

    Oh yah..... I do not know anything when it comes to the mechanics of the
    1911 platform. :eek: I just love the way they look and that they can really be
    tuned.

    Thanks

    Look for the Jerry Kuhnhausen shop manuals for the 1911. There are two volumes. These will tell you just about all you need to know. Another good one is "Hallock's .45 Auto Handbook". It's not as thorough as the J.K. books, but it has good info for maintenance and repair.

    Another vote for the Jerry Kuhnhausen books. They are not cheap, but they are definitely the best and worth every penny. You can order from Brownells,, Midway or various other vendors.
