I believe some manufactures have changed to torque screws. I finally bought a set of torque driver bits.

Not really. Most 1911's use a a very unusual thread size, 0.236"x60tpi, and regular hardware stores aren't going to have them. Brownells sells the taps, screws and bushings and most gunshops should have the screws.

I use a 3/32" Allen wrench , I have the set that I bought for my Dillon 550's. Fits perfect on all my Ruger 1911's
