    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.

    Great tool

    I purchased to tool to use on my brand new Gunsite Colt Light Weight Commander to remove the slim bushings and install the regular size bushings to accommodate my new grips.



    This tool enabled me to remove the factory installed bushings with out damaging the frame. The total time to remove and install the new bushings and grips was ten minutes. Great tool and outstanding customer service.

    Bushing Extractor Tool . . .

    Cons:
    Nicely made tool but I ordered the wrong one . . . Should have ordered the standard, and not the slim design (my bad!)



    Never-the-less, I can easily see that the tool is invaluable in providing possible potential damage during bushing installation or extraction. Again, low cost insurance against inadvertent slips which we have all experienced!

    Slim Bushing Extractor

    Well designed and well made tool. Makes the removal of slim bushings, even stubborn ones that are easy to bugger, a snap.

    Only The Best

    Cons:
    I previously used a method to remove bushings that, while I incurred no cash cost, the time was extensive. What took me 15 or 20 minutes per bushing - unless I got lucky - was reduced to less than 5 minutes to do all 4. Don't waste your precious time. If you own as many 1911's as I do, and even quite a few less, it is worth the small investment. Nothing anywhere in the marketplace comes close!

    Talked to Brian and had him customize the extractor to fit the Colt ultra thin bushings. Worked like a charm. Thank you
