Any book recommendations?

I was looking at was Wilson .45 book(sorry cant remember the title) and the other is Dave Lauck's Tactical 1911. Or should I get both? I just am lookng for a general use 1911 book that covers maintence, use, etc. Any opinions/suggestions appreciated.

The only thing neccessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.

I was not impressed with the Wilson book. Seemed to be an infomercial. Lauck's book looks more informative.

I recently read Dave Lauck book the tactical 1911 and it was great!!! I took two pages of notes and passed it on to a friend. I don't agree with his press check tech. but otherwise I feel it is a must read for a 1911 shooter.

Just finished reading Dave's book last night "The Tactical 1911". I think it is a good book. I would recommend it.

Have Wilson's ".45 auto maintenece manual" (?) if that is the title. It's in the garage, and I am too lazy to go look. I liked it too.

I would recommend them both.

I was puzzled by Dave's recommendation NOT to detail strip the 1911. I thought as long as you did all the safety checks , once you get it all back together... I dunno.

"Know your .45 auto" by Hoffschmidt
is more of a historical book. If you are looking for technical info. , I would by pass this one.
