Like the title says,I'll be getting my first 1911 in early Jan,'12 so what would the best 1911 book be for learning field/detailed stripping ,reassembly& lubing (DCLA) my new Colt Commander?

These books are very well regarded in the 1911 circles.
I have them both and they are a wealth of knowledge.

Take care,
Dave

"The M1911 Complete Owners Guide" and "The M1911 Complete Assembly Guide" bith by Walt Kuleck are also very good and are more directed to "users" rather than woud-be gunsmiths. They are available at www.scott-duff.com for about $30 each.

The best general information is available on the web.

Kuhnhausen's book makes all other books superfluous.

and I think this is some of it:
http://www.10-8performance.com/pages/1911-User%27s-Guide.html
And check out his article on magazines, too, on that site.
