PDF Classic Version(w/ instructions, PDF, st.ash)
PDF Modernized Version(w/ instructions, PDF, st.ash)

FAQ:

Q: What are those extra panels at the bottom of the slide? How do I build the grooves?
A: Here's an illustration.. And here are the valley folds.

Q: How do I fold the guiderails?
A: Like this. Note that the narrowest face folds flat onto the widest face, forming a "shelf." The rest of it is a box.

Q: How do I build the rail base on the modernized version?
A: Look at its front and back faces. They should provide an idea of how everything else is folded. Here's a picture.

Q: What are the "inner sections" of the slide (pg.2) and where do they go?
A: If the "bottom of slide" is a u-shaped half-tube, its "inner sections" are attached inside it, to the larger hatched areas. Their job is to keep the spring front cap and the barrel apart. Here's a photo. Although covered by the bushing, they are partially visible from the front.

For some reason when i printed out the model, parts on pages 1,2, and 6 have pieces that are cut off. the parts that got cut off are the ejection port rim, rear slide corners, front sight and the front frame floor with the piece to the left, as well as the back of the mag well. how can i print this out so that the pieces fit in the margins?

The resolution of the image is larger than the printable area.

What software are you printing with?

If it's Windows Photo Viewer, UNcheck "fit picture to frame" to scale the image down to the actual printable area.

Also, make sure all the pages are printed with the same settings, to ensure that the parts will fit together.

i printed it straight from the pdf file on my internet browser. Should i uncheck the 'fit to page' box?

Try it on various settings until the entire image gets printed correctly.
If the long gray slide pieces on Pg.1 (pg.2 of the pdf) are between 18.5 - 18.7 cm long (not counting tabs), and no part of the image goes off the edge, then it's good.

I printed it from Firefox, and it doesn't have an option for sizing but appears to adjust the dimensions correctly by itself.
Internet Explorer has radio buttons for "fit" and "shrink oversized pages," which are both good. The one you want to avoid is "actual size."

I finished my version of your Colt M-1911.  It is posted on my site.  I hope that you approve of it.  Again, thanks for sharing.

As an add-on, you may use my photos of the finished work to advertize you model.  Thanks again for your work.

Thanks Hoborginc,  but due to your design, I was able to work with it.  By the way, the dimensions of your work are almost the same size of the government issue M-1911.
