I just got a colt lightweight officers aco from my brother and ordered the clarks recoil spring plug for it today. I was wondering if I should replace the barrel bushing as well? Wasn't it the recoil spring plug that gave issues or was it the barrel bushing as well? Should I order a barrel bushing as well,or do most officers acp owners only replace the recoil spring plug?

Yes, the wafer-thin factory bushings were prone to failing as well as the recoil spring plugs.

I've got the Ed Brown bushing, Clark reverse plug and Wolff single spring. I gave them a trial run and put the factory stuff back in. I will install the Clark, Ed Brown and Wolff stuff when needed. The factory equipment is working fine so far. When it breaks, I'll fix it!
