    Anybody know where this 1911 Manufacture pdf came from?

    I have a pdf file, about 7,787 KB, that describes the manufacturing process of the 1911 pistol. I think it must have come from here, or from a link from here, and I want to refer someone to it.

    It says it is from Machinery, Volume 49, Number 4, New York December 1942, and has a picture on the first page of US soldiers pointing 1911 pistols, and the Text Making a World-Famous Automatic Pistol by E.P. Herrick, Production Engineer Colt's Patent Fire Arms Mfg. Co. Hartford, Conn.

    If anyone recognizes this, I'd appreciate knowing. And if you know where it is, if it is still on the Web somewhere, that would be great!

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Regards,
    Andrew

    Thanks! That is exactly the document.

    Now I can refer someone to that site/link without having to email the large .pdf file, or trying to explain where I got it and why I don't remember where it came from.

    Thanks again!

    Regards,
    Andrew

    Now that's an interesting .pdf, for those of us that like heavy machinery. Thanks!
    Too many people miss the silver lining because they're expecting gold.
