    I recently bough a used Springfield loaded and swapped on my VZ grips. they were more snug fitting on the SA than on the colt I had them on. when wanting switch back they VZ grips are on tight and I cant even slip a card under the grip to loosen them off the bushings. Is there a better method? tool?

    I dont want to scratch the frame or ruin the grips in the process :o.o:

    thanks in advance

    Reach up inside the magwell with your finger or a dowel and pry them off.
