    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.

    I tried to remove slim grip bushings on a new 1911 so I could install regular sized grips. Using a properly fitting screw driver, two of the bushing started to strip out. I ordered the regular and the slim bushing extractor. I used the slim extractor, and easily removed both of the stuck bushings with no further problems. Fantastic tool that I wish I had a long time ago. It saved me an expensive trip to the gunsmith.

    The right tool

    Expensive, but this is the right tool for slotted bushing installation/removal. Wish there was an option to buy both wrench head sizes together in one package.
