I’ve got one of these. Well, sort of. I have one of their bench blocks, and the 1911 wrench is molded into the underside.
It works well.
Oh come on, if your gonna be man enough to carry a 1911 you should be able to field strip it by hand.
J/K I use one of the Wilson Combat blue plastic thingys on my bench
I had a Kimber Gov't Model with a full-length guide rod, and the lip around the guide rod hole in the spring plug was sharp enough that I preferred using a bushing wrench on it. On the numerous other 1911 variants I've owned, not so much. Heck, half the time I just disassembled it like any other modern auto--just punch out the slide release and slide the whole assembly off the front (making sure to cover the spring and guide rod assembly as it clears the frame), then pull the spring and rod out from the rear.I never had need of a wrench, on a standard Gubmint Model.
Buddy had a National Match, with a really tight bushing. He used a wrench and got to where he used the wrench on EVERY 1911.
To your question, yes, they do work.
