    The bushing is different between the commander and the full size. While you can assemble it the full size bushing should be longer than the commander.

    Going to local smith Monday. I'll let him measure it & maybe hone it a bit. Worst case scenario, he most likely has a bushing in stock that will suit my desires.
    Thanks to all for the chat, I've learned a bunch.
    When I asked these questions over on1911 Forum, I got flamed for not wanting a gun that was so hard to tear down.

    A lotta snobs on the 1911 forum & why I don't go there anymore. I still get "highlights" emailed to me which just serve to remind me why I don't go there.

    HUGE UPDATE..
    For those who followed this thread, I went to a local smith today. Even he couldn't turn the bushing....with a wrench!
    He wanted $80 to hone it out to fit. Humm....Eagle Imports is sending me new bushing, so I got nothing to lose.
    I put some 600 grit sandpaper on a Dremel and worked it slowly. Test, turn, test, turn, repeat.
    I got to where it's easy with a wrench and just a bit snug by hand.

    Thanks to all who chimed in here, I appreciate it.

    Sounds like you've got it handled.

    I go to the 1911forum (the grey one) now and then. It's nowhere near as snobbish as Gloque talk. But I think unless you're already an expert or you spent $3,000 on your 1911, you'll be largely ignored.

    Got another 150 rds on the new Commander today. First two mags went into a 2" circle, so no accuracy issues with my repair.
    I also tried a lighter spring, but it caused issues, FTE's, FTF's. I put the original #18 spring back in and the issues cleared up.
