    Thanks johnchanlon for your fantastic post!

    It reminds me of the days when I was a rifle competition shooter here in Japan and enjoyed handgun shootings in California thirty years ago. The 1911 "Colt Government" was very heavy for me to handle though I loved its sophisticated mechanism which still fascinates me.

    Hi Folks,

    I have both volumes of Jerry Kuhnhausen's books about the M1911 if there are specific details you might be interested in. I have also had a fair amount of success in messing around with this class of pistol.

    Hey Shinpachi, what kind of rifle competition were you involved in?

    - Ivan.

    Sorry Ivan. I haven't noticed your post for hal a year!!!

    Started from .177 cal air-rifle(Walther made in Germany), I went into .22 for the rifle shooting competition.
    My final dream was to afford some real handguns legally in Japan because hi-class rifle shooters
    were allowed to apply handgun to the police. Permission was limited for 50 shooters only, though.

    One day, I noticed - "Why don't I go to the United States? It's free to shoot them there."
    I went there immediately:)

    thanks JC for posting the blueprints. I had a copy of them but in a moment of digital dyslexia accidentaly erased them along with the working drawings I was making from them. I intend making a replica 1911 firing .22cal.
    For now its back to the drawing board.
