Does a thread adaptor affect a freak insert's job?

If I use an adaptor with a freak insert, will that extra inch or so of normal barrel bore between the breech and insert affect my ball?

I've just been thinking about this, as I have a couple SFT freaks, and don't wanna buy yet another freak back for my cocker when adaptors are so cheap. But it seems like it might ruin teh whole point of an insert kit.

yup any time you step up or down in bore size(especially down) you have an increased chance for coaxial misalignment and barrel breaks best bet is get a back for your cocker.

It shouldn't make that big a difference. The freak inserts have a beveled edge to alleviate this from happening. It will increase the chance of the fancy words mentioned above though, just shouldn't be major. Either way, I still recommend the additional freak back.
