I am going to try and fit a new barrel bushing to my Kimber 1911.
I don't need one, it's just kind of a learning experience for me. If I screw it up, I still have the original, so I'm just out the few bucks for the bushing.
Now I know that the tab that fits into the slot on the slide will be oversized. My question is on fitting the bushing to the barrel.
Do I just remove enough metal from the inner diameter of the bushing to permit the barrel to slide through it (keeping the ID a perfect circle), OR, since the barrel tilts up, do I have to relieve the BOTTOM of the ID of the bushing, making the ID a slight oval?
