Am I the only one who has had the idea of using a Holley carburetor Jet screwdriver to install/remove 1911 grip bushings? I haven't actually tried it, since I haven't had a reason other than this to own any tools for working on Holley carbs in a number of years, but since Holley jets and 1911 grip bushings share the need to bridge a gap with your screwdriver when turning them, which can easily result in fouling up either one, and Holley makes a tool that solves this problem, I figured it might just be thing to adapt for the purpose.

I have a Holley driver and if I remember the middle part was too wide to fit my bushings. No reason it couldn't be made to work though.
