    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 always change my 1911 grips to slim grips, which necessitates removing the old bushings. I've used vise grips, the Brownell's bits, and Grab-its/EZ-Outs, but this tool makes it easy. I've paid gunsmiths on occasion for this task. The Brownell's bit slipped off. Vise grips made a mess. The Grab-its worked, but with torque from a drill it was hard to control and prevent the bit from "walking."



    I'm impressed with the Challis tool. I removed 4 staked Colt bushings in less than 15 minutes without any problems.

    this extractor is a high quality tool. I used my heat gun for a few seconds, attached the extractor and inserted the handle and backed the old bushing right out. worth every penny!
