The Model 1911 and Model 1911A1 Military and Commercial Pistols, 3rd Edition, totals 566 pages. It includes 84 tables detailing parts and markings and 678 photos and drawings. This book is part of North Cape Publications, Inc.® For Collectors Only® series of books on collector’s and antique firearms. Parts are described in chapters organized by subassembly receiver, slide and magazine. Serial numbers are listed in individual tables by military and the individual commercial models such as the ACE and Service ACE, National Match, .38 Super, Commander, Gold Cup, British, Argentine, Norwegian, and Canadian military models, etc. An appendix also contains a serial number listing organized by shipping date. Check to see when a pistol was manufactured, then to see when it was actually shipped. Parts are described in chapters organized by assembly receiver, slide and magazine. Each part of each assembly, i.e., trigger system, magazine release, sights, etc. are then described and photographed complete with markings and other identifying characteristics. Parts are differentiated by model and manufacturer, i.e. Colt, Springfield Armory, Remington Arms-UMC, Singer, Ithaca, Remington Rand and Union Switch & Signal. All Colt commercial model and variation parts are also described and compared to the military .45 ACP part. Serial number ranges are provided for every model and manufacturer of the Model 1911, Model 1911A1, and Series 70/80 in separate tables. Serial numbers for British military, Canadian, Argentine, Norwegian, and Russian military pistols are also given. Markings are often the key to authenticating the Model 1911/Model1911A1. All military and commercial markings are listed by date or serial number range of use in twenty-six individual tables both by military and the individual commercial models, and by other manufacturers. Individual chapters provide detailed examinations of markings on receivers, slides and barrels, including both military inspection and commercial markings, all correlated to serial number ranges. An appendix includes photographs of all slide markings. Finishes are discussed for both military and commercial pistols by serial number ranges. Accoutrements and accessories for the Model 1911 and Model 1911A1 are thoroughly explored. All belts, magazine pockets, and holsters are described and photographed. Complete listings of all U.S. military holster manufacturers--- U.S. military Model 1912, 1916, M3, M7, and M15 are included. U.S. military-issue ammunition in .45 ACP is described in detail including cartons and shipping containers. Complete listings and descriptions of all holster manufacturers are included. U.S. military-issue ammunition in .45 ACP is described in detail. The Argentine Ballester-Riguad and -Molina pistols, as well as Norwegian Models are discussed in detail and compared to the Model 1911A1. A photo-illustrated assembly/disassembly procedure shows the most efficient way to maintain the pistol. As always in the For Collectors Only® series any change or variation in a part is described by serial number range, making it possible to determine the authenticity of any Model 1911 or Model 1911A1 by year of manufacture.

About the Author:

Joe Poyer has written or co-written fourteen books on firearms using the part-by-part approach (which he originated) to the analysis of collectible firearms. By using factory and other records combined with the systematic examination of large numbers of the subject firearm and consultation with many collectors and authorities, his books in the For Collectors Only® series have made it possible for collectors to examine a subject firearm in a forensic manner to determine its authenticity. He has written over four hundred magazine articles on firearms, military history and the modern military, twelve novels with worldwide sales, and served as an on-camera military consultant to a large, independent television station in Southern California.

Review:

I highly recommend the latest Collector's Only book: The Model 1911 and Model 1911A1 Military and Commercial Pistols by Joe Poyer. This book is the new Bible for those who want to learn more about these venerable John Browning designed pistols. The information on the [544] pages is both complete and reliable, and each model and every gun part are clearly photographed and amply described. The true collector will appreciate the sections on related hardware and accoutrements. This is clearly author Joe Poyer's best work to date. --Peter Crampton, Canada

This hefty tome brings together information from a wide range of primary sources to provide a complete guide for collecting America's greatest service pistol. Organization is by assembly: trigger, slide, sights, etc., with parts within each assembly described in luxuriant detail with 672 illustrations and 82 tables to spell out particulars. Serial numbers for foreign equivalents like the Norwegian m/1914 and Argentine Modelo 1927 are included in separate tables. Military and commercial markings are listed by date or serial number range for easy verification of authenticity. In all, this is a guide any M1911 collector will find essential." --Shotgun News Bookshel

The one-stop, standard reference in the [Model 1911 and 1911A1] field. It is simply first rate. --Lee Rutledge, author, Campaign Clothing, Field Uniforms of the Indian War Army.

This is North Cape's latest volume in its highly successful For Collectors Only series of firearms handbooks. It dissects John Browning's most famous pistol in near microscopic detail from barrel bushing to lanyard loop. Crammed with all manner of highly detailed information on every part, markings, serial number ranges, finishes, accessories and ammunition.

This book is a must have for Colt 1911 collectors as well as anyone interested in modern US Weapons. --Classic Arms and Militaria, Vol. 20, No. 1 (Feb/March 2013)

The one-stop, standard reference in the [Model 1911 and 1911A1] field. It is simply first rate. --Lee Rutledge, author, Campaign Clothing, Field Unif-orms of the Indian War Army.
