Colt M1911A1 Pistol Blueprints by jballard Sep 24, 2011

Description

Do as you wish with these drawings

included are two versions of detailed drawings for the colt 1911

These drawings are freely available on the net.

As far as I know these drawings are released government files from the 40s.

BTW Make/use at your own risk, know all laws before using or manufacturing, if you download the file you assume all liabilities for your actions.

Remember:

Guns dont kill people,
People dont kill people,
Bullets dont kill people,
Gaping holes in vital organs kill people. (the skin is a vital organ.)

enjoy

is not about guns only you can make it in plastique or alloy ,the thing is about accomplishing making your own gun ,i know it goal (not a black powder gun) ,but those blueprints mixing with American guns show .........makes you dream.

One of the finest pistols made and still is . Thank you for the prints.

I agree with both jballard and everyone else that has a problem with this. On one hand this could be used a a great safe prop for educating people about guns or as a prop in an independant movie. I also believe that this could be used for creting weapons at home that are not liscensed and can be used to harm others and just be melted away. In the end it all boils down to the PEOPLE!! Knowlege is free, liberating, and incredibly dangerous in the hands of stupid people

I've seen these blueprints around before, but was always disappointed that many of the dimensions are illegible (and I've heard there are also some errors in the prints). I recommend instead that you use Rio Benson's superb redrawn blueprint set: http://riobenson.com/m1911-a1%...

wow now those are some beautiful prints, Thanks for the Post!

I bet the same people disparaging this applauded Julian Assange of wiki leaks.

I am going to use this to make a replica to teach people that don
’t want to use guns how to safely handle them if need arises. So thank you.

jballard on Sep 28, 2011 said:

glad I could be of help, also Down with wiki leaks!

I wish there was a 'dislike' button... :'(

jballard on Sep 26, 2011 said:

I wish there was too, so i could dislike you.

but I can tell you where the back button is: in most browsers it is un the upper left hand corner, typically right below the menu, good luck finding it, sometimes it is tough since you get sucked into things that you dont understand. Goodluck!

I hate this!

jballard on Sep 26, 2011 said:

im glad you, i hope you hate my other things just as much.

Thank you for the useful comment, it has only inspired me to post more items of this caliber.

truthfully I only decided to post the 3 that i have posted after seeing your ridiculous thumbnail beside your name.

Have a good day, you only have yourself to thank for these posts.

Very handy for prop-making, but please consider marking this thing a "work in progress" until you have CAD files to share.

jballard on Sep 25, 2011 said:

no im perfectly fine with what i have supplied, there is plenty of info to manufacture the m1911a1. so a work in progress would not be correct, especially since I have one and so do millions of other people.

JelleAtProtospace on Sep 25, 2011 said:

Childish.

jballard on Sep 25, 2011 said:

how so?

sharing knowledge is childish, maybe we should go back to a time where knowledge can not be shared.

If you do not care for or like the information supplied hit the back button.

What tools are required to make this object? How can I use this as a negative space object? How do I get from bits to atoms? As it stands now, I don't think this thing is of any use to anyone.

jballard on Sep 25, 2011 said:

maybe for you, as it stands it is a complete file that includes all dimensions to manufacture an m1911a1.

So if someone wanted to manufacture this firearm it would be of great use to them.

on Sep 25, 2011 said:

I think this is the M1911A1, rather than the M1911, given the relief cut behind the trigger opening?

jballard on Sep 25, 2011 said:

you are correct it is title as that in many of the drawings, I will correct it

carmiac on Sep 25, 2011 said:

Is Thingiverse really the place for this? I mean, Thingiverse is for digital designs and a scan of a sketchy blueprint isn't much of a digital design. CAD files, either in editable or at least stls would be better. Also, assembly instructions would be appreciated. Thanks!

jballard on Sep 25, 2011 said:

Since im bored I uploaded a complete manual

jballard on Sep 25, 2011 said:

when it was scanned it became digital, and if you are able to download iti is definitely digital.

Sketchy, as an American I do not find a blueprint one of the finest pistols ever designed to be sketchy.

Cad not included sorry, maybe later.

STLs are a horrible format for everything but printing.

Assembly instructions are not needed, they are all over the net, just google "1911 assembly"

on Sep 25, 2011 said:

If you'd like to turn the sketchy blueprint into a 3D model, by all means, feel free. I don't complain when objects are posted in a format that my particular choice of tools don't read, and I find it puzzling when others complain about that.

Begone, cowardly nameless troll.

See, this is why cowardly trolls shouldn't be allowed to pollute the conversations where grown-ups are talking. If you don't have the courage to state your opinions while attaching them to your own name, your opinions are worth less than nothing. Begone, cowardly troll.

Troll, Troll, go away. Don't come back some other day. Please don't feed the Trolls, this is old news.

Americans and their tiny tiny... er guns?

jballard on Sep 25, 2011 said:

I can post some German ones, btw this is one of the best pistols ever manufactured and has been in production for over 100 years

on Sep 25, 2011 said:

Thank you for saving my many hours in finding this drawing. Please, don't be bothered by the noisemaker who will, inevitably, respond to my post, criticizing your object. He's just a gnat in the grand scheme of things.

jballard on Sep 25, 2011 said:

Blueprint wise I have:

AK47, Browning M2, various derringer plans, Mac 11, Liberator, m-14, m-16, m203, Maadi Griffin 50 cal, various SMG frames, PPSH41 SMG, Remington 700, Ruger 10-22, Ruger MK1, sig p228, thompson 1928, M1A1, UZI, and some more if I really search
