    Special tap used to cut .255-60 threads in a 1911 frame for Repair (oversize) Bushings. Custom ground by Challis Grips, this tap will ream the hole to the proper size and then cut the threads; pre-drilling is not required. The closeup photo shows the custom reamer grind. To our knowledge no other oversize bushing tap is ground this way, Others require pre-drilling to .234" before the hole can be tapped.

    This tap will ream the hole to .234" and then begin cutting the required .255-60 threads. We suggest the use of our Frame Repair Tap Guide when using the tap.

    The original bushing threads striped. Bought this tap and the guide and the oversized bushings. Everything worked together well. Totally saved my frame. I will only use Challis bushings in the future

    Well Designed

    Fragging a grip bushing on a brand new aluminum frame Kimber just by removing the factory grips ruined a good day. This tap, which is special(tapered so no pre drilling), made replacing the bushing simple.

    Best money I've ever spent on my M1911

    EASILY a five star rating. Get a quality tap handle, use a little bit of some household 3-in-1 oil to help the process, take your time, go slow, think before you act, and success with this product is pretty much guaranteed. This was the first time in my live I've ever tapped new threads, and it went easy as pie.

    I had a stuck and buggered up grip screw bushing on my Springfield M1911. I had previously tried turning it out with a screwdriver, which naturally failed, and drilling it out to collapse it in on itself with a punch, which naturally failed as well. I was left with the original, and now damaged, threads in the frame, together with remnants of the grip screw bushing stuck in those threads.

    I spent about 20 minutes slowly and carefully working the tap into the hole, with the help of the alignment jig. As soon as it was ready to cut new threads the tap bit and the feeling on the tap handle changed. Just a few easy moments of carefully tapping the new threads and presto, my oversize bushing fits perfectly. I'll be replacing the other three bushings with the higher quality hex-drive versions, BEFORE they cause problems.
