Gentlemen, Here's the problem you can get into when you have a loose barrel OD to bushing ID fit - simply changing out the bushing might make little if any difference since the barrel OD might be undersized at least to the extent that will preclude getting an acceptable fit with only a new bushing. If you want to ensure that you get a good fit and still want to stay on the safe side of the rules interpretation, you need to buy both a new mil spec barrel and a new bushing - preferably from the same manufacturer.

MidwayUSA sells Swenson barrels for around 45bucks and bushings for 13.

I have had good luck with them. You may find them better than what you have currently.

Once again history is repeating itself...... I saw the equipment race when the Garand Games started, nothing has changed I see.

b) The pistol must generally conform to the weight and dimensional specifications of the standard-issue service pistol;
c) Rebarreling with a barrel of the same type and length as the M1911 barrel is permitted;
d) Only government-issue parts or government or commercial parts of the same general weight and dimensions may be used;

There you go now stuff a Kart barrel in it and be done. Just remember too remove the Kart stamp on the barrel hood and have it blued, now it a USGI replacement barrel.

I'd recommend finding post war colt contract replacement barrel. Has C in a little box on the barrel foot.
