    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 replaced the bushings on one gun and if I never use it again it was still money well spent.

    And let me tell you. This is the last review you need to read. Was told it was going to need a gunsmith to weld a grip screw in it to pull the bushings out. This tool did it like my bushings weren’t completely trashed which they were... I was truly amazed best specialty tool I’ve ever bought. Just buy this and never worry again. Ps my bushings were in a brand new never molested colt 1991a1. And I used a screw driver that fit the best. And stood no chance but this tool took them out like they should of. Ps buy new bushings from these guys, the 0 rings for the bushings and the o rings for the grip screws. Huge game changer.

    I hit the installed bushings with a bit of heat from a heat gun and the tool removed them with absolutely no damage to the bushings or frame threads. The last time i removed bushings with a screwdriver i ruined 2 of the bushing and luckily didn’t damage the frame threads. Even if you think you will only need to use it once, go ahead and buy it. Damaging your frame will be a much bigger pain and expense than this tool.

    This tool saved me another trip to the gunsmith!

    I can't say enough about the usefulness of this tool. A few months ago, I had to pay a gunsmith to remove the mashed bushings off a new, custom 1911 with loctited and over-torqued bushings which it took very little to damage using a traditional bushing wrench.
    I purchased another expensive 1911 and before even trying, I ordered this tool, which Challis sent out lightning fast. As it happened, this one was also very tight and loctited. The Challis bushing extractor easily removed them with no effort and no damage to the bushings.
    Anyone who owns a 1911 should own a Challis Bushing Extractor!
