Brass Cleaning Rod?

Recommended Posts

It appears to be an early WWII cleaning rod. They were issued with the WWII guns and would also have been sent to the British through Lend-Lease. They are identical to the rare early Colt short rods that were probably issued during the 1930s.


No way to tell if it's a reproduction from the photos, though I don't believe anyone is reproducing the brass WWII rods. They are still fairly easy to locate.

I have never seen a short rod with the patch slot (I'm not saying they don't exist, I just haven't seen one) and it's hard to tell from the photo if it has the slot or not. I do have a a short brass rod with a patch slot, but it doesn't have the larger diameter loop at the end. It has a smaller diameter end that may be of foreign manufacture. I have only seen a couple of these for sale in the last couple of years.
