    My first 1911, A Series 70 Colt, had the "Accurizer Bushing" in it, as it was called then. And it did do just that. Ive often heard that "they were prone to breakage" but I put MANY thousands of rounds thru that gun and it was fine the day I traded it like 15 or so years later.
    Im sure somewhere there are some that broke, but for a few bucks, those bushings are a poor mans accuracy job. Buy a couple or three and roll on.
    Yes, that pistol was a DEAL @ $500.

    I owned this model back in the day and had it lightly customized by Bob Cogan of Accurate Plating when they did pistol smithing. It was a great pistol and like so many regret selling it but used the funds to eventually purchase a Les Baer. Never had problems with the bushing but it was pretty well recognized as a weak point of the design if you plan to use it for serious purposes. I think you got a good deal especially since it has upgraded sights.

    Would be a great candidate for a build. I always like the combat elite roll mark, little cheesy but cool.
