40x cleaning rod.



Log in to see fewer ads
Ive got a 1959 40x here and am having a hard time finding a one piece cleaning rod that the handle will clear the stock and not bend the rod.

As you know on these stocks the cheek area slopes upwards away from the action.

Anyone have any recommendations ?

Thanks

Just the handle hits? Not the rod portion? If so you just need a longer cleaning rod. I use Dewey 44" cleaning rods for my 22 target rifles.

The rod will hit too. The current rod is a 42" dewey. The problem is that the highest part of the cheeck area of the stock is higher than the bore.

Its looking like the only way to clean the %%%% thing with a rod it to remove it from the stock

After answering your questions about what rod you should use in a lengthly detailed post on a different thread, I come to find out that your comb prevents you from using any rod from the breech end of the rifle without removing it from the stock.

Boy, that's a pretty big piece of info that you left out.

So then the answer to your question is simple.
Measure the overrall length from the busing to the tip of you barrel, and if that length is less than 42 inches (which I think it will be) then any 42 inch rod will work, including the Dewy you already have.

As long as the Dewy measures their rod lengths without including the handle or the jag.

From the info I provided, we know that the 42 inch Pro-Shot does not include the handle or jag, therefore it should work just fine.

Smoothtrigger: sorry about not giving that info as i didnt look close enough to realize it till after i asked those questions. Im going to have to figure out something different because i dont wang to be removing it from the stock.

Im curious what other vintage 40x owners are using.

Bore-Tech does make a 48 inch .22 call rod fro .223's.
Diameter is unknown, but I'd guess that it would be fine.
Remember most shooters that need a small diameter rod are CZ owners because of the extractor the sticks up and slices the heck out of most rods.

I doubt the it will be long enough to clear your comb (A photo of you stock would be helpful), but if you could measure how far back from the end of your bushing to a point that a Pro-Shot handle would clear it, you'll have your answer.

Smooth

None of the 40x's that I've seen in person have combs that would be in the way.
In a casual search, I did come across a 40x military trainer thumb hole stock with a high cheek piece, but I couldn't tell if it was high enough to be a problem.
A photo of your rifle would be very helpful.

Are you sure that the .62 inch Pro-Shot handle won't work.
Remember the Pro-shot handle has a smaller diameter than your bolt.

Look down your comb and see if you can see the bottom of your receiver.
Or better yet, lay a thin ruler on the comb and see if it hits the bottom of your receiver. If it hits half way up you're screwed, but if it hits anywhere near the bottom you're good to go.

It looks to me that your comb is low enough for the Pro-Shot, but not even close for the Dewey.

Smooth

Your comb only looks to be a bit higher than my Anschutz. In your photo it looks like if you removed your bolt straight back it would hover above your comb.
The handle is smaller than any bolt that I know of at .62 inches in diameter.

Well if you ditched the bore guide it looks like a Pro-Shot may work.

Even with the bore guide in, you may only have to arc the rod for part of the way down your comb.

Otherwise it's out of the stock for you.

Interesting to see if any other 40X members with your exact rifle post up.

Good luck.

Smooth.
