Steel Brass Cleaning Rods



Log in to see fewer ads
Anyone know where I can get either a steel or brass cleaning rod? I am so tired of the Otters junk Walmart sells. They don't last and aluminum seems to pick up grit that probably hurts the bore. My last Otters lasted a month.

A one piece would be nice.

Dewey or Tipton one piece rod will do the job and last forever. Just price them on Amazon. Not very expensive either.

Brass too will pick up and hold grit.

If you go to your local Sportsmans Warehouse they should have a nice variety of cleaning rods and supplies. The one here has them.

I use the Pro Shot rods for pistols & rifles. I bought the .20 caliber rod for my .22 rifles. They work great.

Kleenbore one piece stainless steel rod. It's super slick. It won't hold grit and should last you a life time. It comes in a storage tube to keep it clean. I've used one for many years and it still looks brand new.

It's available from Amazon.

I've had good luck with Pro Shot as well as Dewey & Tipton rods. I always wipe the rod with a clean cotton rag before using as well.

Hoppes makes both carbon fiber and stainless steel one-piece rods.

I normally use vintage brass rods but have and use the cheap wallyworld types too. All have decades of use on multiple firearms and i've never seen one 'wear out". How did you do that? Are you talking about the threaded ends going bad?
