M1911 A1 Drawings
Rio Benson of Benson Consulting, LLP took all of the M1911 A1 drawings he could find and created updated versions of them.  He has provided them with the understanding that the documentation may be published and distributed freely as a complete package, without charge, provided nothing is altered in any way. Furthermore, the writing on page 2 is an integral part of the package and must accompany it in any of its published forms.  These drawings are in PDF format and are a little under 5Mb in size.

I have used these drawings to fabricate parts or confirm measurements, as well as the two M1911 shop manuals by Jerry Kuhnhausen.  You can click on the heading above or the link below to download Mr. Bensonís drawings.
