    Quality one piece cleaning rod.

    Mine is no longer straight (sat on it)
    What do you recommend and where should I get it from?

    I've got a Tipton carbon jobbie, seems to do the trick.

    I would go for either a Tipton carbon fibre or ProShot SS one.

    And chop it half for a straight-ish short rod

    Have you tried turning it over and sitting on it the other way?

    i guess while you had the hacksaw in your hand you could also chop the barrel so the short rod will fit the short barrel

    I have a Hoppes stainless steel rod and it works well, use it for my 223 and 260.
    It's too tight to use on my CZ 22lr so have recently bought a Tipton carbon for that.

    Surely cleaning rods are much of a muchness?
    The Tipton is nice, but not sure its worth paying $70 when the $35 Hoppes one works just fine.

    Could make your own Cam ? I was thinking about getting my bro to make a few up how hard can it be to put a handle on one end of a stainless rod & a spike on the other .

    My last one was ss. Cringed anytime I felt it touch the side of the bore.
