1911 Component Specs

Does anybody know of a website or other online source that would have schematic drawings or other clear depictions of 1911 parts giving the exact measurements and cut angles for each part? I have tried the in-house search engines of several 1911 and general handgun sites, as well as Googling every relevant word combination I can think of, but no joy. Any assistance would be appreciated.

I can only suggest the alternative: obtain a GI 1911A1, take it apart and do the measuring. That's probably what some of the many manufacturers of copies had to do, eh?

That would work. Fortunately, I didn't have to resort to that. I was reminded on a couple 1911 sites about the superb Kunhausen books on the venerable 1911 and they proved to have exactly what I needed. As a bonus, I was given a link to a digitally remastered set of blueprints used by contract manufacturers of the M1911A1 in 1942. I'll post it for any pistolsmith forum members who might find it useful.

Jeez, that is a beautiful 'remastering' job. You may still need to do some measuring in the 'flesh', but it ought to be a great assist.
