Some shorten their base pins.
I have done it to my personal 4.6" & 5.5" K-Bisley Vaqueros. But it make them hard er to remove when stripping.
On Calamity JoAnne's pair of 7.5" OM K-Vaqueros, I installed the longer ejectory housings & ejector pins. And they looked really good (almost like they grew there). So I never shortened her base pins. But I only made that mod because I already
had a pair of them assemblies on hand. They came off'n some 10.5" K-Super Blackies.
