    I am in need of a set of metric coarse thread grip screw bushings for a 1911. I know that RIA used these for a while. Anyone have a set? <My next option is to tap them to the oversized bushing, but I haven't done the math yet to see if that will fly. The thread on the metrics is M6-1

    try here:

    There is a forum jump tab that you can use to go to the Armscor section.  Somebody there may be able to guide you in the right direction.  There is also an ad banner for Rock Island sales, but there wasn't a phone number listed to order the parts.  I didn't see the bushings listed there, but it may be worth a shot.  You may also try calling Legacy/ Citadel at 775-828-0555.  They sell parts, so they may have them in stock.  I tried a few sites, but didn't see any mention of metric screw bushings offered.

    After taking some readings it looks like I can actually retap these holes for standard bushings. Anyone have a bushing tap they care to part with?
