A profit is not being made here; there are considerable costs involved in website, software, equipment, time, and maintenance in providing the files, and the fees for the model and native drawing files are necessary to continue making them available. What's more, these files, including the REDUX, can only be provided with your complete understanding that I, Rio Benson (Rio Benson Consulting), do not in any way recommend these files be used to manufacture, maintain, repair, or modify any
firearm; such use is the total and absolute responsibility of the user. These files are offered only for historic and entertainment purposes.
Clicking on either of the illustrations to the right will download The M1911A1 REDUX, 2nd Edition
, multi-page PDF that contains all of the drawings, the illustrations, and now includes 3D PDFs
) of all models
. If you don't know, 3D PDFs allow the user to manipulate 3D CAD files in all six axes, using only a mouse and the required Adobe Reader
, version X, or later. Right clicking an opened 3D PDF file also provides a submenu allowing a number of other options for viewing the files without the need for CAD software. This is a large file, about 57 Mb, so please give it adequate time to download.
Once you receive the files, you may use them however you wish - except share them - they are still my Intellectual Property
. If you use or modify my files in your own work, literary etiquette says you should credit me in the document in which they are used. If others want to obtain my files for their own use, you should send them to this site, or have them contact me directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org
