One issue I have with plugs that fit down the barrel: you run the risk of contaminating the barrel if the plug has any debris on it.
I just realized what type of plug you were referring to. I like the TPX plug as it only has four contact strips and would be easy to dust off before installing.
Good call. Gotta pick one up for the next gun. I'll add a pic to post 1 for posterity.
