By Walt Kuleck with Drake Oldham
250 pages. 6" x 9". Softbound. Over 400 photographs and illustrations. This companion volume to The M1911 Complete Owner’s Guide takes you step-by-step through building a custom 1911 pistol from component parts, or by upgrading a stock pistol into a tack-driving match gun. Not only tells you the “how” of a procedure, but explains why it’s done, cautioning about pitfalls, giving tips, and describing the resulting benefits. Includes chapters on frame and slide fitting, grip safety installation, barrel fitting, slide assembly, sight installation, frame assembly, final assembly, and finishes. Don’t work on any 1911 until you read this book.
