Default Cleaning rods

Where can I get a solid one piece cleaning rod? I'd prefer steel, I'm tired of dealing with the Outers universal cleaning kits with the cheap aluminum that snaps where you screw the pieces together. [:@][:@]

Thanks in advance

the 3 best 1-piece rods are probably those made by Tipton, Dewey, or Bore Tech. These can be found at many websites - I can recommend as good sources:

Good luck

I can vouch for the Dewey one piece coated rods. I have three of them and they are an excellent cleaning tool. It would be money well spent on one of them!

Most any of the larger sporting goods stores should have good one piece cleaning rods. If you are close to a Cabelas or Bass pro they definetly have them. Walmart even has a coated one piece rod made by Outers.

I use a Parker Hale plastic coated one peice rod from www.brownells.com . I have used the same rod for 8 years, and it still works like new. Good luck.

I have two from J. Dewey. One is .22 cal and is a composite material. The other is for .27 and up and is SS. Both have swivel handles to go along with the rifling twist and are excellent! I also got tired of the cheap ones from Outers, etc, and decided to go with the $30 apiece for these tools. I haven't been disappointed. Your local gunshop should be able to order them if they don't have them in stock.

I as well use the Dewey coated 1-piece rods, they should be available at most hunting or gun shops.

One more vote for Dewey rods. I think www.brownells.com carries them.

What the heck, I'll chime in too--I also swear by Dewey nylon-coated rods. I bought my first one a few weeks ago after accidentally bending my Outers three-piece rod. It was the best $25 I've ever spent.
