Oversize barrel bushing sales

I wasted money on an "Oversize barrel bushing" in ebay, from well known company, but it has three pads to file down instead what I was looking for, a 1911 bushing that needs to be bored slightly in the lathe and the OD turned to the proper fit.

Who makes the old style?
Thanks,
parts

Sounds like you got an old Clark bushing. I didn't think that they offered those anymore. EGW, Harrison, Wilson, Brown all offer conventional oversize bushings for sizing on a lathe. Brownell's stocks many of them.

Hi
On my last build, I usd a EGW "Angle Bore" bushing.

You give them your slide and barrel specs and they cut it for a hand fit.

I have a mill and lathe, but the bushing was so close I just fit it by hand.

600 rds. through the pistol and all is well.

Just sayin, was quite impressed on this and will use one for my next build!

EGW makes the industry standard for bushings today.

May I ask what they are called, what I'm looking for I mean.
Thanks,

EGW has several barrel bushings available. Some are also available from other sources such as Brownell's:

Thanks,
First, measure your barrel OD, slide ID, and distance from the face of the slide to the front edge of the bushing retaining lug slot. Then call EGW and ask for an angle bored bushing to match.

Hi,
Be advised, the thicker front on the EGW "Carry Bevel" bushings...

Will need the thicker recoil spring plug to match!

See my pics in post #3!

Thanks guys, I measured the slide's bore and the barrel OD and then only had to search EGW's site for a bushing that has extra metal in those two areas.

Now if I screw up that's on me, naturally!

No need to search. Call them with your dimensions and they will turn one for you.

EGW also sells a NM bushing with the NM part number added. I would think it is a standard flange shape and thickness with the bore undersized and the OD oversized for gunsmith fit.

Once you have a setup for production work like this it goes fast at at a reasonable cost.

'Special setups' are the nightmare of every machine shop.
Hours of time for a single job runs the bill up badly.

For a basement machinist with more time than money it is workable.
More than once I have wished for a reason to keep a complicated setup together.
But I cannot afford to purchase another sine table, and rods to use it.
Or rotary index head.

One of the things you can do for a production environment is make special tools to use in individual setups.

If you only need a few known index angles, a full rotary index head may be overkill.
Make a head that handles ONLY the angles you need.
