Made by a guy named Knauthausen, or something real similar. Mine's downstairs at teh moment and I am busy upstairs and outside (and about to get back as my cooling-off break is over). Will look later.Can anyone recommend the best repair/armorers manual for the 1911?
Yea, THAT'S the one.The best is the Jerry Kuhnhausen shop manual.
There are two volumns. The most useful is volume One, volume Two is more blueprints and specs for all the individual parts. However, if you can afford it, buy both.
These are not reprints of any old GI manuals, these were written as training aids for new gunsmith trainees. Since Kuhnhausen trained gunsmiths for the industry, including the gun companies, these manuals all show the factory methods of repair. You won't see any of the old "heat and bend" type of gun work.
