For use with grips that are between 0.156" and 0.185" thick.* These extra slim bushings use the same O-ring for both the bushing and the grip screw. Eight O-rings are included in the package. If you remove your grips often, we suggest you buy more grip screw O-rings to have on hand.
These bushings are easy to install and remove. Loctite is not necessary for installation if they are torqued to 18 in-lbs for both steel and aluminum frames. Use 7/32" nut driver or socket. These bushings will work with grips not less than 0.156" thick.
We strongly recommend using the supplied O-rings because of the benefits they provide, such as preventing stripped threads, eliminating loose grip screws, scuffed frames and providing the most secure mounting available for the 1911. They may save your frame.
* We don't sell screws for grips within this thickness range. Such grips require special grip screws that are shorter and have a shoulder head as shown below. They are sometimes called slim grip screws, but not all "slim" grip screws have the required head style.
