    This is a great reference and I have a copy that came out of Ft. Ord when the fort was shut down. I have found a couple of errors in it, the most obvious is on page 2-27, illustrating a pin gage. The part number given is for the snap gage used to measure the lug height of the operating rod. The tech bulletin covers gages used for the M1911A1, M9, M14, M16 and variants, .22 cal, M8C, M24, M231, M2 Variants, M60, and M85 weapon systems. It's interesting that the T-Handle Torque Wrench (96059) on page 2-87 is not illustrated. The drawings are proprietary to Remington Firearms. However, the 65 inch pound torque gage is actually a Seekonk tool that you can buy from Brownell's.
