My thoughts precisely, but it also looks like there might be so much meat on the body that they're not necessary in the same sense as they are with a phantom/cci body. That said, you're still right - they will do you better in the long run than just tapping the body direct. But again like I said they're not necessary in the same way that they are when it comes to phantom/cci bodies where you really have the bare minimum in terms of aluminum body to work with.
