    I shoot fowlers with very long barrels, I am looking for a cleaning rod approx 56 inches long , and threaded on each end for 10x32 and 8x32 . needs no accessories, just a steel rod with holes in the end.

    Regards,
    Bryon

    Just go to a weld or machinist shop and have them weld two pieces together. Suggest you use cold rolled steel as mild will rust very quickly. It shouldn't be very expensive but it will cost. All avocations have their expenses.

    I have a Fowler with a 72" barrel. Made my first rod out of metal rod and it was heavy and very whippet, very difficult to control. Made one out of 7/16" wood rod with ends and it works just fine.

    Why not just order a 6’ piece of round stock? Can get it gound and polished if you want. A supplier like MSC would have whatever material and diameter you want. Just need machine shop to cut to length and tap the ends.

    I drilled and tapped a section of an 8' X 1/2" copper clad grounding rod from Home Depot. The heavy rod is also useful for loading a ball stuck in a heavily fouled bore.
