There are three red intermediates finely wrapped between the stripping guide and the grip. Blued guides and ferrules with witness marks on the ferrules. The tips are numbered for convenience.

Your shipping estimate will be calculated at checkout and if you have any questions please contact us. Please note the buyers are responsible for any applicable import duties or fees that may levied. Due to the importance of packing items carefully please allow up to two weeks for arrival (depending on how busy we are) though we certainly do our best to get items to you as expeditiously as possible.
