    Les Baer probably has one that's real tight and requires 500 uses before cleaning.. 8)Ron

    I have one of those.

    It's okay. Remember that the tools don't lock out in any way. When using the little allen wrenches to tighten grip screws, I had to continually adjust my grip to keep it from collapsing on itself and not jab itself into my palm or the gun.

    I'd recommend it for a range bag. I wouldn't suggest using it instead of proper individual tools.

    Really for me it would be a waste of money, when I go shooting I have any tool at my disposal that I may need, and I don't need any tools to field strip my 1911, so I reckon I'll pass:biggrin1:

    I have a simple theory that gives Mr. Murphy his due respect.

    I carry a basic assortment of tools in the drawer on top of my ammo box. They're always available to help out other folks on the range. If I leave them at home, it's guaranteed that my gun will puke.

    I think that one would have less control over the tool (using it as a bushing tool - it's dependant on ones grip strength and spending $38 - $50) than the standard wrench ($5).

    I bought a handful of 1911 tools a year ago and keep one in my wallet at all times. :thumb:

    As for the rare time I need a bushing wrench, I just use one of the plastic versions that I've received free with certain 1911s over the years.
