    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.

    Pricey, but worth it!

    Bought both the slim and standard version of this tool. I am a machinist by trade so metal working is no foreign object to me. I tried removing a bushing with just a screwdriver and without much effort it started to distort. I then stopped and bought these. Popped every locktite'd bushing out, even the marred up one with ease. I don't usually write reviews, but this tool is a must for anyone looking to swap grip bushings.

    Yes, these are ridiculously priced for what they are, but the bottom line is that they do exactly what they are designed to do and they do it very well. They even work on bushings that have been fairly extensively damaged from attempted removal without this tool. (Key with these slimline bushings/tool is to use the supplied screw, not a grip screw). The old adage "buy once, cry once" certainly applies here. Just buy it and then you'll have it for the rest of your days.

    Removed the bushing from my 1911 with ease, simple to use and fast. Best part is no slipping with screwdrivers or pliers. Would definitely recommend++

    Awesome!

    I am a firm believer in having the correct tool for the task at hand.

    This is without a doubt an excellent quality tool that saves time and makes the job simple without destroying the old bushings. A very good investment.
