    Colt SAA pressed in bushing

    Any one know a source of a 3rd gen. pressed in cylinder bushing? Going through some of my dad's parts and found a nickel 3rd gen cylinder in 45 Colt but it has no bushing.
    Thanks in advance.

    Doesn't everyone? A pair of vice grips will do that easy enough.

    No vise grips needed. Follow the instructions that come with the bushing. You'll tap some threads in the old bushing , leave the tap in or replace it with a bolt, and knock the bushing out from the other end with a long punch. Very simple.

    The original post states that the cylinder has no bushing. So he's just got to find a new one and figure out how to press it in.

    Sounds like an opportunity to have a professional drill it out and install a full-length original style bushing, and be done with it.
