Default New rack grade member - question on break down and cleaning

Hello forum. I just received my rack grade 1911A1 and the first thing I did was read the enclosed manual and broke it down step by step for a good cleaning with CLP, and to inspect all the parts. I was in the Marines and familiar with breaking down and cleaning the M16A2, along with a handful of other privately owned pistols and rifles. While it was fun breaking it down, I've never broke a pistol down this far for cleaning, and I can't foresee doing this every time I shoot it (e.g., the trigger assembly, the mainspring housing and lanyard, the sear assembly, etc.). Does anyone have a USMC guide to field stripping and cleaning? We have a different way of doing things than the Army.
