Did the late 1940's, and/or early 1950's, 22 conversion kits for the 1911A1 pistol come with a barrel bushing as part of the unit? I am referring to the kit that came in the plain brown box with the rampart colt stamped on the cover. Thanks.
I have a numbered unit from WW2, number U14XX, complete with barrel bushing, in the box, compartmentalized. The second unit I have is in a brown box with no barrel bushing, apparently from the late 1940's. Thanks
Here is a pic I have of the Post WWII Conversion Unit boxes that have the tape over the items that were no longer included. The tape is covering item#5 (Bushing) and last part of item#6 (Recoil spring guide and plug). The practice of Colt no longer shipping these parts with the Conversion Units continued with later versions.
My unit has a compartment for the spring and plunger but there is no barrel bushing, as can be seen in the above photo. Why would Colt include a compartment for the spring and plunger and no barrel bushing? Very frustrating. Thanks.
