Archon, I have found WWII era M1911A1's often have excessive barrel OD to bushing ID clearance. A clearance of 0.007" is not uncommon. New production 1911's often have 0.001" to 0.002" clearance. Simply get a new standard barrel and bushing and you will probably be OK. Another option is to measure the OD of your barrel and buy an undersized bushing and have it reamed out to the proper size to fit your barrel. Rick
