    I got a pair of esmereldas grips in today. The grip screw bushing on my TLE pro is to big. Not by much but it is. Do i need new bushings?
    Or do i possibly screw up my grips trying to make them fit?

    if you got slim grips, then you need slim bushings and screw.

    I had the same problem today-I just alternated tightening each screw until it went on the bushing-mine were new, but secondhand. You might want to call the company and see what they suggest. Springfield uses a larger diameter bushing than Colt, not sure about Kimber.
