    I want to learn 1911 modifications.
    Have experience and basic gunsmith skills but not with 1911.
    Any suggestions on which books are better than others? :confused:

    Gimp, welcome to TFF.

    One of the best books I've found is " Hallock's .45 Auto Handbook".

    The descriptions are clear and instructions are easy to follow.

    Ken Hallock was assigned to the USAF Gunsmith Shop which was, at the time ,a part of the USAF Marksmanship School.
    He built six of the 1911's I compete with so I can tell you his methods work.

    Wilson Combat also has a couple of good books.

    All are available from www.brownells.com
