Greetings all, hope you're doing well.

In regards to the S.A. 1911 Emissary (9mm w/ 5" bull barrel), would it be possible to install a "supported" reverse plug for the guide rod? The reverse plug that comes with it leaves an open gap that I would like to do without. See pics:

I ask this b/c the newly released 4.25" 1911 Emissary appears to have a reverse plug that does indeed close up this same gap on it's bull barrel. See pics:

As you can see, both of the 5" and 4.25" bull barrels seem to be the same diameter in the 9mm platforms. Same thing for the guide rod opening, in which I'd like to keep for a FLGR (a bit more front end weight).

"Wilson Combat" lists a reverse plug that supports a 5" bull barrel (they have an open end and a closed end version) that looks to fit the bill, but I'd like some feedback & thoughts from you experts and fellow shooters. See pics:

Let me know what you think, and if you may have any additional knowledge and experience on this particular inquiry. Many thanks in advance!

I've used them with success in a TRP. Some I cut down for smaller for a Detonics so believe that is a part you can substitute.
