    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.

    I am a gunsmith, trust me it works. Damaged or staked on bushings it laughs at them all. Just make sure if the bushing is damaged to cut or file a slot so the tool has something to grab on to.

    Wow, I wish I would've thought of this... This is a very well thought out and designed tool ! Began changing grip bushings on my pistols to Challis bushings recently, after stripping two heads and having to carefully work them out with needle nose pliers and my vise, I decided to give this tool a try. I was so happy with the results that I bought a slim bushing tool as well. Hint, apply a little heat from a micro torch to the bushing prior to attempting to extract. Thank you ! I'm sure I will be utilizing these tools regularly. Love those bushings and the Wiha socket driver too !

    I was in a bind with some damaged grip bushings on my 1911. They were really stuck and the harder I tried to remove them the more damaged they became. I struggled for days, then went online to try to find a solution. Came across a video for the Challis Bushing Extractor. Ordered one and it worked great! Done in minutes. An awesome tool for any 1911 owner. I highly recommend this.

    Bushing Extractor Tool

    Pros:
    Cons:
    This tool was clearly manufactured properly, showing no blemishes, divots, or burrs. It makes removing straight-blade driven bushings easier than with a screwdriver, and allowed me to remove the OEM bushings without damage. It is compact, but not so small that someone with large hands would have trouble using it. Users should be mindful of the internal screw when using it, as this part can be accidentally dropped if the drive handle is allowed to slide out all the way, but that's the nature of the design, and is not a flaw per se.
