The question is why did someone feel it necessary to add the bushing pictured? I suspect the firing pin hole was off center originally, and the bushing was the fix. Any other ideas?

When I made my first reply, I had a feeling that perhaps I should check my examples to see if they have the bushing (a bushing that would seem unnecessary). My instinct was right. Apparently, ALL Model M pistols have the bushings! All of mine do. (Why Colt thought the bushing necessary remains a puzzle.)

On the offending pistol with the loose bushing, I would knick up the outside of the bushing to raise some metal and drive it back in place, perhaps with some red Loctite for good measure.
