    Need detailed drawing info...

    Good Morning/Afternoon All,

    As my FIRST post here on this website, I was wondering if a book exists that contains "Detailed" drawings (with dimensions, etc.) of 1911's.

    I'm looking to do a 3D, Computer Aided Design drawing (AutoCad), and I would need the above info to complete said drwg.

    I know I could take my Kimber apart and do a bunch of measuring, but I'm not sure it would be accurate enough.

    Any help in this would be helpful, THANKS
    Roger, RSRdesigns
    Las Vegas, NV.

    Welcome to DC. I was thinking about the same site as Ret. That's about as detailed as I personally know of.

    Smile Thanks for all the warm welcomes...

    After checking out the above site, while it's a pretty detailed graphic and all, I was really looking to find information as to actual sizes not so much as to how the gun "works".

    I'll keep looking around and thanks again to the "welcoming committee".

    I do not have a copy of this, but from the description you should be able to get all of the specs from "The U.S. M1911/M1911A1 Pistols Volume 2" By Jerry Kuhnhausen.

    The description says in part "This brand new superbook is absolutely loaded with new & updated material, parts dimension & hardness specs, and the nuts and bolts tech data required to dimensionally inspect, restore, repair & build super accurate, super reliable, "blueprint" quality carry and competition grade M1911's."

    Kuhnhausen is probably going to come the closest to what you need. I just flipped through mine, and I don't think everything includes dimensions, but there are a lot. There are also shop diagrams for everything, so it would be easier to get your measurements off those than off a real gun in parts, anyway

    You might want to call Colt Firearms.

    When the Colt 1911 was contracted out to SINGER & Union Switch & Signal...etc. in order to increase production they were all provided with working drawing that were to scale.

    Now that is going back in time a ways but, they do exist.
