SW"1911" with spherical bushing

Hi

Local gun store owner/smith is a fan of 45acp model SW1911 with spherical bushing.  Does anybody shoot one of these?  Just curious.  Is this similar to the old  model 945?

I believe that Jerry Keefer discussed the spherical bushing in a different thread.  He said they were ok, but that there really wasn't much of an advantage over a fitted bushing.

The other thing I didn't like about the SW1911 is their version of the series 80 firing pin safety setup.

Ah, yes!  Good work JayhawkNavy.

The thread I was thinking about was the Briley barrel bushing thread.

Understood, I just stuck all Jerry's comments on bushings into same post.

I guess I was the one that posted the Briley question.

The follow up to that would be. I bought one for my 9mm RO. I took it to the range twice and put it through the wringer with every load I had. The pistol now has the original bushing back on.

Thanks everyone.  My curiosity is satisfied.  I'll pass on looking into this further.

Don't pass on it. When installed correctly they work fine.
But, no better than a correctly fitted standard bushing.
