Hi, I am experienced with AR's and full size M1911's, but I want to build a compact M1911 in .40 S&W as a carry piece.
I want to find a book on building M1911's that covers bushingless (bull barrel) work as well as everything else. Please recommend a book on this topic.
I am also looking at Brownell's catalog, and am not finding much that would be useful for the project. Very few .40 S&W barrels, all bull barrels are 5", only one slide in .40S&W, etc. Please recommend sources for .40 S&W parts for M1911 pattern rifles.
