Re: LMR-400 Variants?

Just a quick sanity check...  so, the pins all have the same O.D., but a
different I.D. to accommodate the wire diameter, correct? So they all will
fit in the N "body" without mods?

And I should be able to go to RF Connection and just order the correct pins
and swap them out (and use these on some 4XL that I have)?

I also just noticed that the connectors I got recently came with sets of
pins. Somewhere in there I should have a full connector for LMR-400. :-)
