Can someone tell me if this is some kind of tool for the 1911?
I found it in a box with other 1911 stuff. I looks like you could remove
grip screws, and the tapered end to push the mainspring housing
pin out. What do you think? It's kind of heavy.

Not one that I've ever seen, but it could be a homemade tool made from something else, and used on a 1911.

I've fashioned several small tools out of brass rods to help with gun cleaning or disassembly.

It might have been used to push pins via the small end!

Don't know about the big end!

Don't think it's home made.... it does fit the grip screws...never thought
about the bushings. There's no markings on it that I can see.

Is it nylon?

If so, I have something similar that can be bought on Amazon or 1911 sales sites. In the pic below, my tool is 2nd from the top. The tool I use to help get my firing pin plate out is the 4th from the top. It is great and keeps things from flying around the room.

Whats Quora? Never heard of it.

I've stumbled across it. It's a site... and gets a surprising number of people who have "been there, done that" in the military realm and many others.

How it attracts experienced people, I do not know... but many of them seem genuine.
