Barrel fit. It will remove majority of vertical play and some horizontal. Frame to slide is very small percentage of accuracy. In my opinion less than 10%, much less.

Barrel to slide, especially if you have slide mounted optics, which virtually everyone has these days. If you have a frame mounted optic, well then slide to frame is pretty important too.

In most cases you will need EVERYTHING right to see any inprovement in accuracy. I have done a lot of 1911 accuracy work and I feel guilty taking a person’s money for “just a bushing”. It all works together as 1 piece. I have seen some guns shoot with a loose slide to frame fit, but normally those guns have a steel compensator to pull the barrel to the same spot in battery. Bullseye guns tend to be more sensitive to slide to frame fit.
