    Yeah, looks better...........all I've done, is buff up the end that shows. Am I assuming that one could(with the skills and equip.) actually make the end area of the guide rod any design they want, as long as it doesn't go to far in?????????? Micro bling????????

    I pulled the kit I had from it's drawer and found that it's guide rod was significantly longer than the one I just received; otherwise they seem the same.
    I like this look much more:

    Now that I know for sure it was the length of the old guide, I may trim it down for a flush fit and give it slight bevel (vice the cone shape it has).

    Greg, It looks like the sleeve is sticking out a little further than it should. The relative stiffness of the inner and outer springs are what I believe determines where it ends up. Maybe try a different combination than the set you have on there from what you have laying around if you want to get all OCD about it.

    Thanks for the heads up Al! I'll give that a check after I've shot it some (maybe after just letting it sit overnight). I had just installed the kit when I took that photo.
