Okay, so after my recent foray into the world of trying to track down parts locally... I've decided that, although I may not (likely won't) make a career out of it, I would like to learn more about smithing the 1911. This is something I expect will help me in the long run, because I plan on doing all my own work, and one day, I would like to own a 1911 collection as extensive and impressive as other's here. Any good books to start with? I'm thinking the Kunhausen (sp?) shop manuals. Anyone familiar with them?
