    I didn't know this but evidently the cleaning rod I have is bad since it is aluminum and is a 3 piece so I need a new cleaning rod. What is a good one for me to get? Biggest rifle I have is a Mosin Nagant. Also what bore guide should I get? Preferably a universal one. I have 2 Ruger 10/22's, SKS, Mosin Nagant for rifles.

    Good luck!There are so many top-notch rods on the mrkt these days picking "one" is going to be a chore.

    Noting,I like coated steel one pce.Generally,because I can't make them.CF and SS rods,along with ANY guide systems are easily fabbed in our shop(and have made a few...duh) yet,......I still plug away with two Kleenbore coated rods(economically priced).

    I do have several "jointed" Alum rods....and believe it or not,they do get used once in awhile.They ain't hittin on a whole lot and you need to be very careful.....but,that goes for any rod.

    It says .27 caliber and up so it should be good for your .30 caliber rifles unless you have mile long barrels. I have a .300 Win. Mag. target rifle with a 28" barrel and they have a longer rod section for longer barrels that they sold me. It works great. You will need a smaller diameter rod for your .22 caliber rifles. They also make a reciever guide for your bolt guns.

    This is the one for your .30 caliber bolt guns if they have scopes but it will work well for both.

    They also make muzzle guides for your automatics.

    Oh good I'm safe then. Will have to get them next time I get paid. Would this be okay for my SKS? https://www.deweyrods.com/cart/index.php?route=product/product&path=109_117_120&product_id=425. Also since the nylon coated one isn't much more expensive should I go with it or not?

    If you have the kit that goes with your Mosin, it has the rod guide that fits over the end of the barrel.
