Just be aware that a Gatsby tube is 2.25 and a Sierra or its clones, wait who cloned who (?), is 2.21. It shouldn't make a difference unless you over mill the blank or reuse the tube and again over mill the blank.

The gatsby is finial twist. Length is important!!


The sierra is body twist--you can be "off" by nearly a quarter inch without causing problems.
