Egw barrel bushing

Just wanted to get some in put on the EGW angle bore barrel bushing. I am thinking about getting an EGW Carry Bevel Bushing. I am want to know if it is worth it to get the angle bore or just go with the stright bore. The gun I am getting it for is a Springfield loaded px9151lp

I bought and fit the angled bore and have had no trouble with it. Very good product.

I bought a S70 Gold Cup that had a mis-matched barrel bushing. It was the collet type, but clearly for a different barrel. I ordered an EGW angled bushing and the gun now shoots extremely well. Went from a lemon to sweet lemonade. I have another S70 that's a bit of a FrankenColt that I may do the same thing with.

However, you do need accurate measurements to make it worthwhile. I used an inexpensive Frankford Arsenal electronic caliper I bought on sale at MidwayUSA quite a while ago and took about 10 measurements and averaged them out. I also spoke with EGW on the phone to make sure I was on the right track. They were very helpful.

Good luck,

Very nice and minimal fitting

Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you,
Jesus Christ and the American GI.
One died for your soul; the other for your freedom..

We should be thankful to both

I went with the "angle bore bushing" too. Didnt want the chance of the barrel springing.
Good luck on yours.......................................... Troy

Get the thick flange. Supply your measurements and fit it. It is worth the effort. Slide your calipers from the barrel end back about 3/4 of an inch and give the largest bbl. OD read when you order. It will vary/change as you move the calipers. A dowel rod cut to 6" lengths and sand paper from the auto parts store, 230-2000 grit .........and you will shrink your groups. Well worth the effort.
Grip. Stance. Hold. Sight Alignment. Trigger control, squeeze/press.

Good bushing.Take many measurements,as in 12-6,3-9,1:30-7:30 on the clock.The slide limits it but find the tightest and give them that measurement.They correct for the barrel clearance,the OD may need a liitle messaging to get in the slide at worst.
