View Full Version : FREE M1911 Manual - Circa 1912-1914

Here's a link to a page that provides 2 links to a free copy of the original manual on the M1911. The copy can be downloaded in a variety of file formats.


In the past I have taken a lot of flack from 1911 fans because of what I consider to be a fault in the design of its slide stop.

That is addressed briefly.

Hopefully 1911 makers will make a fix available to 1911 fans.

Thanks for the link; I have shared this with a few others. If you like history you will enjoy going through it; notice no pictures (1912) all the instructions are text only....
