    The Challis Extractor is placed over the bushing and rotated until it engages the slot. It is then firmly secured to the bushing using a standard grip screw. This keeps the tool in constant axial contact and alignment with the bushing, something that is very difficult to achieve when using a screwdriver or socket wrench.. Any axial misalignment increases the applied psi by reducing the contact area between the driving tabs and the flank of the slot. Increasing the psi compounds deformation of the flank, further reducing the tool's effectiveness.

    When the force required to turn the bushing with a screwdriver exceeds the strength of the bushing's narrow rim, the rim will begin to shear off by peeling outward, inward and or upward. If there is not something to prevent this, the rim will easily peel away because the driving forces are progressively acting on a small cross-sectional area. The Challis Bushing Extractor supports the very top of the bushing by clamping it tightly against the tool. It also precisely fits the shape of the bushing at the rim's circumference, and the grip screw prevents material from peeling inward. Because of this, the rim has nowhere to go. This means the driving forces are acting on the entire cross-section of the rim, from slot to slot. Because of this, the force required to shear the rim from the body increases dramatically, possibly by an order of magnitude or more.

    If you do any work on 1911 grip bushings you MUST have this tool! Removing grip bushings is a breeze with no problems. I removed eight staked bushings from a pair of Colt Gold Cups 1911's and there was minimal drama when I had to pull up on the extractor to engage the threads after I had broken the staked bushings loose. Then it was just a matter of carefully chasing the threads with a 0.236"-60 tpi RH tap.

    This is an essential tool!

    Great

    . . bushing removal. What used to be a gunsmith’s task can now be done by anyone with two left hands (or two right hands 😀).
    Why didn’t I think of that??? Huh??

    I haven't had the opportunity yet to use either of the tools. I purchased them both after having removed a set of full-size from a SA Ultra with a pair of needle-nose vise grips. Needless to say the removed bushings are no longer useable. I lucked out and did not strip the existing threads or impart any scratches to the frame. The Challis extractor would have made the much easier and much less stressful.
