    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.

    Slim bushing wrench with bushings and O rings-excellent tool/system

    Rating:
    Pros:
    Cons:
    When I was trying to change out bushings in an aluminum frame, the regular bit could not get a sold grip on the short bushings. Due to worry about stuck bushings and removal from an aluminum gun and the positive comments on the forums, I ordered the wrench, bushings, and both sets O rings. Shipped fast. Removal was effortless and didn’t even mark the old bushings. The best thing was no worry about extraction or damage to threads in the gun. The Challis bushings were TIGHT going in, so I added a tiny bit of oil and watched closely to be sure they were not cross threading. The hex shape gives more leverage than I needed and it was easy to get them in/to the correct torque. The directions said thread locker was not needed and I’m sure they are right. The G-10 grips are now solidly anchored and do not loosen while shooting. Every bushing I change will be with the Challis tool, bushing, and both rings from now on, even on steel framed guns.

    Slim Bushing Extractor

    Cons:
    There is no substitute for the right tool. Get you one and do the job right the first time. Don't be a loser. This tool is well made and well thought out. It delivers the performance needed for removing 1911 grip bushings without damaging the frame or the bushing. It is quick and easy to use, too! Apply a little heat to soften the Loctite, mount tool onto bushing and rotate tool to extract bushing. It's that simple. Highly recommended if you really care about your 1911's and take pride in your work.
