    Does anyone have a system to remove and install the barrel bushing ? I have a Kimber Stainless2, and this bushing is a real PITA!! The plastic wrench is just about to break. I’m sure if I remove it and replace it enough, it will get easier.

    **UPDATE-thanks to my friendly neighborhood ffl dealer I'm getting a screaming deal on the RO Elite Operator 9mm. Eventhough I said I didn't want a rail I'd be a bigger fool than I'm usually accused of being if I said no LOL. He ordered one for another customer, that guy had to back out so I...
