Replace the wooden rod with this heavy duty 3/8" brass rod. It is strong without adding much additional weight. Drilled and tapped 10-32 on each end for all popular ramrod accessories. The front end of each rod is knurled for easily withdrawing from the thimbles. Each rod is made especially for your rifle. State exact rod length desired, and rod diameter. These rods are custom made one at a time for your application. Please be exact because they are not returnable. We also now offer the option to have your rod antiqued so that it blends in with your gun and doesn't have that brass shine to it. Due to the cost of brass going up, rods over 32" we will charge $4.00 more and if rod is over 40" it is a special order charge.
