-And last i can assure you the use of this Collet Bushing, if you use it on a standar barrel (with not a oversized muzzle), is not so tight but you feel a remarcable diference on the lock up, with out putting much pressure on the 4 spring.
I have use it that way long enough with out problems.
P.D. Believe it or not, both type of barrels have almost the same muzzle size
