Just doesn't look right !!

Are they supposed to fit like that
NO!
A ramrod without any attachments should not extend beyond the muzzle. Other than getting a tip dirty, there should not be a problem. Actually the tip should sit back about 1/4" from the end of the muzzle. Recently saw a SideLock whose rod extended about 4" past the muzzle. Looked like you know what, on a white horse. .....

On my in-line hunter, I have added a T-handle extension and have it covered and it does show power burns that I can live with.

I routinely restore or remake ramrods for SideLocks and a few in-lines. I try to stay back no more than 1/4" from the end but some may have to go flush.

Be Safe !!!
