EGW's Melt bushing is machined from solid barstock steel.Melt Bushings offer a unique look to the front of your 1911.Melt Bushings require a two piece guide rod set-up to disassemble your gun. The spring will need to be taken out of the back as well. The flange on the melt bushing is too large to allow a spring plug to pull out from the front.
PLEASE NOTE. IF YOU SELECT THE COMMANDERIZE OPTION THERE IS AN APPROXIMATE 2-3 WEEK LEAD TIME.
The flange thickness is .125" which protects the barrel more because it sticks out farther than the spec bushing.
Available in Stainless Steel and blued Carbon Steel.

O.D. of the bushing = Inside diameter of your slide - usually .699" - .705";
