Deadlywinds / freak insert question

Exactly have far in is the freak insert suppost to be on a deadly winds fibur. It seems like I might have problems removing the insert if i put it all the way in flush to the back threads. Anyone know the exact proper distance the insert should be sticking out the back if any??

Not to thread-jack you but I might as well ask here instead of making a new thread; Are the stainless steel inserts the exact same as the aluminum ones? Thinking about picking up a Fibur.

the insert should sit flush or slightly inside.

the inserts ar the same size, aluminnum are lighter. the ss inserts can take more of an abuse and the bore size labeled on the ss are more accurate than the ones on the aluminum inserts.

Nza808- like hmcl281 said, they should slide in flush or slightly inset. If it's tight, try putting a little bit of lube on the of front lip out the insert and it will deliver the lube to the oring inside. If it's dry it can get very difficult to install and remove. If it is sticking out any, contact deadlywind about it directly via the contact form on the deadlywind.com site.

Just bought the fibur and a SS kit as well, can't wait for them! I went with SS because they apparently are more sturdy, as well as they do not shrink / expand due to weather as Al does. Also SS I have read has a smoother finish and in theory will give a better shot. For $35 extra compared to Al brand new for the kits I went with it... Can only be better than Al excluding weight.
