I think Wilson had a few styles including a smooth one . I should have both a few different ones to see the style I prefer but I did a brain fart and just got the one that has the grippers on it.

Thanks from Snyper762

By the way, I agree with Phil, just plain checkering has worked fine for a 100 years, four major wars and a bunch of small crap. Anything else is just like trying to "improve" a Zippo lighter.

Since it is partly related to the theme in the last few posts, this is a tool I have worked with that may come in handy for some. I was going to carry them, and may still order a few for inventory to sell at the occasional gun show.

The curved rubberized handle on a dike or pliers works well to reset the full length guide rod plug. Stick it down the plug a bit and it sets it in and holds it captive so no fear of pirate eye.

What is that @#$% doing?????????? Once the spring plug is out remove the spring, then draw the slide too the rear. This makes turning the bushing almost always 100% easier than what you see in the vid. Remove slide from frame, then remove barrel with bushing still on. Once barrel and bushing are removed from slide then remove the bushing from barrel.

The way he did it is a nice way too really screw up the bushings skirt too slide fit fast, and before you know it the accuracy of a good pistol with a well fitted bushing just went into the toilet.

Thanks from High Hat

I was wondering why he was using a tool for the bushing as well. Mine rotates easily to pull out.

I agree with Phil. There isn't a reason to remove the bushing before the slide. Especially if it is that well fit. I'd pass.

I guess I can understand a barrel bushing this tight on a target pistol. But on a carry gun I want my old fingers to be able to turn the bushing.

Late to the thread but the S&W E-Series are really nice. I picked up the rail model and like it.

I don't disagree. My bushing was fitted to the slide & barrel in my carry gun. It was a little too tight though and I slicked it up just enough for me to turn it.

Cap, there are two vrs. of the tight bushing, bushing too slide fit then bushing too barrel fit. Both together are desirable qualities that will make even a sewer pipe barrel shoot way better than it should. Most 1911 nutz will agree If you could only have One bushing quality, #1 a tight fitting bush too slide is better than #2 tight bushing on the barrel with loose slide fit only. With #1 there is way less barrel movement.

Anyway as much as I sounded off in displeasure when the owner removed the bushing in the vid. You can hear the bushing snick out when its removed from the slide, that sound is the scraping of the skirt from misalignment as its removed and over time after many removal and installs they loose there fit and accuracy will go down.

The best and the safest way too remove and help preserve the snug bushing too slide fit is too remove the spring plug then the spring, retract slide enough (1/2in) too turn bushing with bushing wrench, remove slide from frame, remove barrel with bush, then remove bush from barrel.

When the barrel and bush are removed together as one part the bushing comes out square from the slide and will not scrape the snout at a odd angle over time one or the other or maybe both becoming egg shaped so there is less or uneven contact.
