So had my first issue with my 1911. One of my grip bushings came out with the grip screw. In looking at it, it seems that when it was assembled some loctite got on the screw threads and basically made it impossible to separate the bushing from the screw. In my infinite wisdom I decided to use a pair of needle nose wrapped in tape to grip the bushing while I tried to separate the screw. While I got the screw out, the bushing threads were completely rounding off smooth. I "thought" maybe trying to put the bushing back in the grip the frame threads would re-cut the bushing threads. Nope. Soooooo, I ordered some replacement bushings. The problem is the new bushing(s) will kinda of start one or two threads in the frame hole, but then becomes super hard to thread. When I ordered them it stated they were the regular height .236-60 bushings. The grips screws thread into the pushings by hand perfectly so I know those threads are good. At this point I stopped and am looking to the forum in helping me find a solution.
