bolt guide comparison

did a search but didn't find anything, so i thought here would be a good place to ask. i have a freeflow and stock SFT shocker bolt guide. i was wondering what the differences between the 2 would be as far as performance or anything since the freeflow seems to be milled down more in the front? i would just keep the freeflow in, but as the hex hole in the back is stripped and it is kind of a pain to get out, i guess i would really like to know if the performance it gains from the extra milling on the front is worth keeping it in. here are some pics to help show what i am talking about. any help would be greatly appreciated

Although that obviously is a Free Flow bolt guide, the end between the o-rings appears to have been turned down to make it more like the newer stock HE bolt guides (although associated with the HE bolt kit, these guides came stock in most Shockers, even those without the HE bolt and HE firing can).

The other bolt guide is an original 2K3 bolt guide, used before the HE bolt guide replaced it as the stock item.

The only difference between the two is the extra air storage capacity between the two o-rings. This allows a little more air to be stored in the firing can, which in turn makes it easier to get up to velocity and/or allows for lower operating pressures (assuming of course that the dwell is long enough for all the air in the can to be expelled to propel the ball).

the freeflow i have is just like that. maybe the factory decided to do that after they annod em? the freeflow is one of the lightest bolt guides too not that it makes much difference.

There were three versions of the Free Flow bolt kit, so it is entirely possible that they took their remaining stock of (for sake of argument) type 1 bolt guides and modified them to type 2 specification for instance.
