    First fantastic detective work on finding the missing dimensions. I am very late to this discussion and have a question for the OP or anyone else that wants to chime in. How did you come up with the other hole locations? Having nothing to compare closely do the other hole, except the trigger pivot, match a 1911 print? I have built & assisted in building 1911's from 80% and 0% castings and understand the process, but a 80% LDA appears to be not possible without a couple of holding jigs and CNC equipment. I feel a challenge coming on but I may not have enough years left in me to complete it.

    How I got them isn't important.
    It's just knowing the right people. 😉
    Doing an 80% LDA frame is no different than doing a standard 1911.
    Slid cut, hammer and dear holes.
    On mine I had to do those ops and the ejector holes and the mainspring housing hole.

    It's too bad an Officers ACP isn't a standard 1911. From what I know about the Officers ACP blueprint project mentioned in a post earlier in this thread, the only hole that's not standard is the hole for the mainspring housing pin -- and trying to reverse engineer that location must be about as frustrating as your effort to locate the sear pin hole on the LDA. I'm pretty certain I couldn't do it.

    I do not want to hijack this thread and and will stop with this question. I'm curious which officers ACP are we are discussing, current Colt production or the M15?
    To my knowledge there were only 1000 M15's ever manufactured.

    There was only one "Officers ACP," a commercial pistol produced by Colt beginning in 1985. It is not "current" production, because Colt dropped the Officers ACP in the late 1990s.

    The hand-built "General Officers Model" (the M15) was not a commercial pistol and was never offered for sale on the commercial market. It was also never named the "Officers ACP." The M15s were built by modifying government-issue M1911A1s at Rock Island Arsenal. They were actually much closer to the Colt Combat Commander in configuration than to the Officers ACP.
