In case someone might be interested, there appears to be a correct early Winchester 4 piece cleaning rod on ebay.  RDB

Had a heck of a time locating it and I don’t know how to “post a link”.  Lock stock and barrel have it.  Ebay Item #313425623469. hope this helps.

That is the one I saw and the rod with the brass end is too short and the rod with the loop end, the slot was not stamped out it was milled by evidents of the slightly larger hole at the end of the slot. A stamped slot does not have that. To post a link  just copy what is in the address bar at the top of your browser (the line that say https:// etc……) just like the below link and paste it into your post.

 The reproduction cleaning rods that match the original are for sale at Buffalo Arms for $48.95, #WCR040RG. You can get 4 or 5 section rods of the original diameter, size, and style. If a person is good at aging them I can’t tell the difference. So to me, I won’t pay much for original rods. Dealers used to take the rods out and sell them separate for good money, not now. T/R

I have to agree Thomas. With 4 or 5 section rods of the original diameter, size, and style, &
being able to age them making it hard to tell the difference, I’ll never be in the market for original rods at 10 times the price.
