Current manufacture Colt Defender:
Tiny little grip bushings (shorter than even "slim" bushings).
I want to replace them with Challis standard sized bushings.
Apparently even the Challis bushing removal tool for slim bushings won't work on these.
My Clapp colt is the same. I bought challis slim bushings and they did not fit. Best bet is to find original colt.
Guess I got lucky, my Defender is one of the earlier ones. Brownells used to carry Navidrex slim grips which use a thin bushing, that's what I have on mine.
