I think what you may be seeing visualy is mostly production variation. I've laid them out and they are very difficult to seperate. I think there may be some finish difference, but it is slight and not much more than regular production differences for NR over the years.

But, I believe there is an internal difference. The GS post is a tad heavier as I believe less material has been removed from the inside of the shaft itself.
