Ok I was cleaning my AR the other day ( I KNOW A SHOCKER) when I noticed that my nice Dewey coated rod was bent and contacting the barrel . SO now I am looking for a new one well two maybe 3 or 4. I don't know. The only features it has to have are below. 1. Quality it has to last 2. 1 piece I am not screwing around with 3 piece rods they scratch barrels.
