    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.

    Dan Wesson puts some serious Loctite on their grip bushings and I couldn't get them out with a screwdriver. The Challis tool worked great. I have the Challis grip bushings on all my 1911's.

    Just Buy It!

    I was very excited to get this tool. It had been recommended to me in various places and my sources were spot on. It quickly and easily removed crooked, cheap, MIMed grip screw bushings with no stripping or breakage. I tested it on one of my ‘beater guns’ to see how it worked—I think I will put some thin moleskin on the frame side before I use it on a blued or SS gun. It left the faintest circles on the frame. Not a scratch, but a line nonetheless. I’m glad I bought it, and am VERY happy with this tool in the box.

    Genius!

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