This Handbook is a reprint of the Jun 1964 Pistol, Caliber .45, Automatic, M1911A1 Support Maintenance Manual that was originally printed for the Department of the Army.
This manual is the first offering in a series which we hope will be regarded as an improvement over the original Army publications and the reprints which have appeared through the years. There are several elements which have been brought together in this effort, and we have been fortunate to have had the encouragement and valuable assistance of a number of friends and
associates. We must give special thanks to Mr. Mike Brubaker, Museum Coordinator of the Union
Station Museum, in Ogden, Utah. Several of the photos in the introductory chapter came from the Browning arms collection in the museum. We are also indebted to Mr. Foye Tinsley III, master leather crafter, of Macon, Georgia, for his assistance in the restoration and conditioning of the leather goods shown in this and other manuals in this series. David and Mary Granger, who have a gun parts business in Tampa, Florida, provided many parts and tools, plus large quantities of patience and encouragement from their unlimited inventory of all of these items. Without the contributions of these people, this manual would have been far less than it is.
There is one other person without whom we could nor have completed the project, at all. For her almost endless support and help, the editor wishes to thank his wife, Elaine.
Some of the topics covered in this book are:
And much much more...
