I am looking for a range/cleaning rod for my 54 Renegade any suggestions?
I've bought most of my brass ram and range rods here...10/32" each end.
Then I add a 2" wooden ball that has a 10/32 bolt already through the middle to screw on the end of a rod.
That RMC is an interesting site.
I nearly stroked out looking at their bp prices. :headslap:
But, having tried to purchase plain brass rod, I have to say, the prices of their made up ram rods seems quite reasonable. Especially considering one will give a lifetime of service.
Great range rod. Biggest one 3/8x43 is $30.90. For your gun you could go shorter.
Make your own! FWIW I have a great metal supply shop near me and can but 6' lengths of solid brass and 'thick-walled' brass tubing for $12 to $16 per piece.
The tubular ones are wicked AWESOME ... as only a guy from Bahstin (Boston) can say it ...
I have Treso brass rods from here:
Working fine so far.
FYI, here's a write up I made from years ago, when I shot 'cap guns', on how to make your own tubular grass ramrod:
I love my delrin rod from TOW. :thumbsup:
I've had two of these for years. One 36" and one 44". They work well for me. Sure make pulling a ball a lot easier.
Tresco and a Board sponsor how can a person go wrong?
No, I think the misspell WAS a result of those little 3" GRASS rods. :rotf:
I figgered they were made from bamboo. :haha:
I've made my range/cleaning rods out of brass tubing & S.S. rod. The brass tubing rod is the one I use during the "woods walk" shoots & the S.S. rods are the ones I use at the bench. The brass tube is capped at each end with a brass plug that is silver brazed on and tapped 10-32 for accessories on one end and a handle on the other when not in the thimbles of the rifle. I use a nylon muzzle protector on both rods :wink: .
I broke my unbreakable delrin range rod from TOW.
