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 slim bushings will work with grips 0.185" - 0.245" thick. Use our full size bushings for thicker grips, and our extra slim bushings for thinner grips.
We strongly recommend using our bushing and grip screw 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 and you can feel the difference.
