I suggest purchasing the Jerry Kuhnhausen 1911 books from Brownell's or elsewhere. Good stuff.

While just recently getting involved in ARs(aside from the Army in 72), I have been building, customizing and competetively shooting 1911s for 30 years. Not to disuade you, but it is not the same as an AR. You cannot just "assemble" a 1911. Well maybe with very loose toleance drop in parts. But to do a decent job things like close fitting and timing need to happen. I.E., Fitting if lower locking lugs,upper locking lugs, barrel bushing to slide and barrel, barrel hood to slide ejection port,fitting of grip safety, hammer/sear geometry needs precise fitting, etc............. .
I do admire you for wanting to learn. Please do. Buy the Kuhnhausen manuals and read read read. AGI has videos also.
