Don't got no 1911's that require a take down tool. Most all the pistols I got are Government, bushing type, and I got nothing against a bull barrel, but I just rather use my hands and thumbs than a tool, when you need to do an ASAP, on the go field strip/repair.

But, that's just me, a direct result, no doubt from that damn past "Army training."

My Kimber has the bull barrel and quite frankly, I would have preferred a traditional barrel & bushing. But, it offered a lot of goodies for the price, so I went for it.

I don't care for the idea of having to use a tool to disassemble it. However, I've had it apart twice and other than being different to disassemble, it's not a big deal.

my colt new agant has a bull barrel and the bushing is still there its just got the spring capture part with the barrel part removed. needs no take down tools works just fine. colt went away from bushings on the short 3 inch barrels due to reliability issues with bushings on barrels that short.

shoots just fine and super reliable.

I have one of each, Sig with the bushing and Kimber Ultra Carry bull barrel. I don't really care for the take down tool but it's not too bad. You can take the Kimber down and re-assemble without using the tool but it aint easy, did it once and that was enough.

Maybe that's why people look at me and say, "He's such a tool" when I'm at the range......?
