    I am looking into purchasing a melted bushing for my para ordnance PX14-45 1911. The Product is from EGW whom makes great parts. The question I have is what Straight Bore and Angled Bore are. I've spent HOURS on the web searching but nothing has really helped. A picture would help greatly. I have all match grade parts on my 1911 and it is the most accurate hand gun I have. I've called EGW and no one has clearly answered my question, so if someone could please tell how it affects my product and how I could find the correct one I need (straight or angled) I would be extremely thankful.

    Thanks again ahead of time.

    could be angle/tapered bore in bushing for barrels with bump on them to fit tight in the bushing.------- just a guess

    Yeah that's what I am thinking but to the naked eye the barrel doesn't taper. I do have other guns with tapered barrels. I know the angle/straight bore is based on how the gun will lock up and how much room/play the barrel has. I just don't want it to be too loose or too snug.

    Anybody who'd ever fit a 1911 bushing would know what the difference is. Get the angled. Go to 1911forum.com and do a search. Has been discussed ad infinitum.
