I bought the kit from Brownells. Just needed one for my alloy framed Kimber, but it seemed to be the best deal available with the oversized tap. Certainly a handy thing to have around for a 1911 owner with multiple pistols or doing his own stripping/detailing/tuning/smithing.

I just fixed this problem with my SA loaded. Mine did not strip the threads in the frame itself, just the escutcheon threads.
I pushed on the back side of the escutcheon with punch while turning it with the tool from brownells. It came right out.
The new one screwed right in and with a little Loktite it shouldn't move for a long time.

I believe you are referring to the "stock (of grip) screw bushing."

And escutcheon is something else.

Although Brownells call it an escutcheon, I think they are wrong too.

The medallion on your stocks is an escutcheon.

Don - There's also a ton of info available through the search function. Just ...

- Go to "Advanced Search,"
- Put the word "stripped" in the keyword blank,
- Change the block below it to "Search Titles Only",
- Restrict the search to the "Gunsmithing and Troubleshooting" board, and
- Hit "Search Now" at the bottom.
