New GOG Freak SS Inserts

Hey, played this last Saturday, paint was .677 for Premium...I have an SS Freak kit and a DW barrel, currently my smallest insert is .682...the new one are 675, 677 and 679.

Are the new inserts the same quality as the old Freak/SmartParts SS inserts? Are the sizes reliable?

I don't know the quality of the new ones, but the old ones were horrible quality. Out of hundreds of inserts tested, most had burrs into the leading edge of the insert and 9/10 were out of SP's own tolerance.

I hope that's not the case anymore...

both my 677 and 675 are within .0005 of the marked size on both ends (i don't have fancy enough measuring tools to get inside the insert more than a half inch) and no burrs

I receive two .675's & a .679 in the mail this week. No burs, nice chamfered edge, perfectly smooth bore and as JOUN1N says, within .0005 of the marked size at the ends. Very happy with them!

I bought new inserts a few weeks ago (the aluminium ones, not stainless but it might give you an idea).
I've measured them:
- 0.682" (or supposed to...): 0,679" (measured)
- 0,679": 0,679" (measured)

I'm not impressed at all. Next time I'll buy Ty's inserts.

The fun part now: the boxes were marked "GOG, 2010".
I thought SP was still alive last year and that GOG appeared after SP went down.
Am I missing something ?

Odd - I never had problems with my Freak inserts in the past - and I have perhaps owned 5 full sets.

thanks, I didn't know the *killing of SP* was planned.

@ TF: weird, isn't it ? I'll take time to take some pictures.

I have heard that the alum inserts were not real consistent...My current SS set is great, just not small enough.
