Thread: single piece cleaning rod

    single piece cleaning rod

    Hello,

    Anyone recommend a single piece cleaning rod for a rifle in 270win?
    I am unable to source one in Portugal, and have been looking online for something. but its a bit confusing because theres metal (aluminium or steel) clad in plastic as well as carbon fibre ones.
    I also read that the end bits dont always fit the threads either...

    cheers

    Have always used either Dewey or Tipton, coupled with a quality bore guide, you won't go far wrong.

    The carbon fibre ones are probably the Tipton ones, they are expensive but very good quality.

    If you can't find anything suitable try fishing tackle shops and look for a cheap fibre glass rod and utilise the top section or a cheap spinning rod as they sometimes come as a single rod and maybe thin enough to use for a .270
    The end ferrule can be filled with araldite to set a screw or nut into depending on what brushes you can lay your hands on.

    +1 for the Dewey and a good bore guide
