To the extent necessary, a general public domain exemption is claimed under CFR The more than principle illustration drawings, exploded parts drawings, individual parts drawings, sectional illustrations, and general graphic illustrations in this manual were drawn in original ordnance style for authenticity by the author and Heritage – VSP staff artists.

To our knowledge, other than the published reproductions above, the limited match conditioning data compiled by the various services, and a previous manual by author Kuhnhausen, very little basic gunsmithing information has been published on the U. M and MA1 Pistols, and little from a civilian gunsmithing viewpoint.

In this regard, it is our intention to provide professional gunsmiths and students with as much basic data as possible on the referenced models, particularly now that many thousands of heavily used M, MA1, and commercial equivalent pistols are in civilian hands.

Colt Workshop Manual – Jerry Kuhnhausen | Forums

In the absence of detailed, model specific training programs, we believe that professional gunsmiths and armorers will be better served by the data, safety warnings, cautionary notes, maximum-minimum specifications, and common sense limitations in this manual than if no information was made available, at all.

Additionally, it seems only fair that nonprofessionals should have access to, and benefit of, as many of the same specifications, cautions, and safety warnings as possible. In this way, perhaps a cautionary note might be read and heeded before the fact of an unsafe act, mishap, or injury. It is hoped that providing an insight into the mechanical complexity of this subject might serve to inspire the reasonable nonprofessional to refrain from tinkering or substituting critical parts and to take his M type pistol to a qualified pistolsmith for periodic inspection and for servicing or repair, when needed.

Before beginning repairs or replacing parts in any of the models discussed in this book, gunsmiths and armorers are advised: The editorial decision to publish this manual Volume II in the Kuhnhausen.

Many of the M parts being manualls are very low quality castings. Some components, including frames, slides, and barrels are off-specification both dimensionally and metallurgically. Because of low end pricing, these parts tend to displace the higher quality components that should be used.

Given that self defense is a good thing, it follows that these well intentioned, law abiding folks should be informed and served in every possible way.

In this regard, reliable data can only help.

mqnuals Truly, journalism at its best. No, Virginia, lousy M commercial parts that can predictably only break does not add up to bad M Pistol design.

Kuhnhausen’s first book on the M type pistols- The Colt 45 Automatic – A Shop Manual now referred to as Volume I has been a top seller since initial publication and will remain in print long into the future.

Volume I was edited from a series of loose leaf manuals originally used by the author for shop training and is a literal compendium on M 45 Auto troubleshooting, repair, hand fitting, custom gunsmithing, and basic accurizing.


All of Kuhnhausen’s informative manuals are presented in the same step-by-step sequence followed by professional pistolsmiths and armorers when installing replacement parts and repairing or rebuilding pistols at the bench. The pistolsmithing techniques shown and discussed closely follow original factory and ordnance methods except where nonavailability of original ordnance fixtures, tooling, gauges, etc.

Emphasis is placed on safety and common sense, correct shop and bench procedures throughout, and the importance of using only within specification parts. Section II includes basic M function and a detailed description of the cycle of operation for those not yet fully familiar; a parts section, including exploded parts diagrams; bench checks, and disassembly in brief disassembly is covered in greater detail in Vol.

In keeping with Kuhnhausen’s original manuals, and with the intent of minimizing the need to thumb back and forth between sections, parts inspections are covered in assembly sequence. Section IV covers optimum performance dimension M components.

With this in mind, it is suggested that the safety function sections and other pertinent sections of this book be read and fully understood, together with the related military field and technical manuals, before handling, disassembling, servicing, or firing an M type pistol.
