I've tried contacting VTI gun parts (no response), and looked through several on-line sites for the ramrod pipe. TOW doesn't have them, and I'm not keen on TRS with it's wish-list. Ebay, nada. Gunbroker, Armslist, etc, nothing there over the last several months. Anyone on the forum who has cut down a Bess barrel and would be willing to sell the ramrod pipe (the one closest to the muzzle, not the others)?
