GI and FLGR bevels

I notice the FLGR impact surface is flat while GI rods are beveled? Is there a reason behind why each one comes that way?

The bevel cut is made to ensure the link doesn't contact the guide rod head. Some manufacturers make the bevel cut and some don't. It's not necessary on every gun but on some it is.

I see. When shopping for rods the GIs always have the bevel. I was just wondering if there was something with the full length not needing that bevel for some reason

FLGR from fusion is not beveled, while FLGR from dawson precision is. It varies from one manufacturer to another.

Many GI Guide Rods are not beveled either.
Varies from Manufacturer to Manufacturer and product lines within that manufacturer

Is this something that's easy to just file down at home or is it better to take it to a smith? Is their some tolerance, relief, or measurements I need to be aware of if doing it myself?
