Barrel bushing fit?




Can someone tell me if a EGW barrel bushing with a .699" O.D. and .580" I.D. Angle Bore will drop in the 5 inch Kimber model?

You need to measure your gun. EGW has instructions on how to measure in their FAQ's. You need the inside diameter of the slide and the outside diameter of the barrel.

You should measure the OD of your barrel to make sure.
Even if the OD is the same, the flange will likely require some filing to fit the slide, so it's not usually true "drop in"
