    What are you looking to learn? Looking to build one, having trouble or just learn all you can about 1911?

    Basically I want to know everything and anything related to the 1911. Take it all apart and put it back together. Know the ins and outs of different models. Have the ability to work on and install new parts etc. Diagnose any problems or issues that might come up. To be a 1911 mechanic : )

    Assuming you have basic metal working skills start here for most of that stuff. Bob Dunlap knows his stuff and teaches well.

    Then start doing stuff to 1911s, you will find many more questions but they will be specific questions that I or others can answer in forms like this.

    A good reference is FM 23-35 if you can track one down, I see them at the gunshows every now and then and they are online. All the history, disassembly,assembly with some minor field repairs and a alot of other info directly related to the 1911. Petty good little manual, wont make you a mechanic but alot of good info.
    hope this helps
