I’m wanting to buy a mod. ’95 pull through cleaning kit that fits into the trap door butt . Also looking for a bayonet for a 2nd mod. ’66 musket, plus 3 and 4 piece cleaning rods. You can P.M. Me if You have such available. Also looking for .44 r.f. ammo  

What caliber and date of manufacture is the 95?  I would assume a 30 cal of some sort.  The bayonet is quite rare.  What gun is the cleaning rods for?  Repo cleaning rods are out there and if you buy the right ones they are made exactly like the originals so don’t pay for a story.

Henry, a shop near me had a 3 piece set and a 4 piece set.  The threads on these sets were not the same.  Both could be repos but one set has the wrong threads.  I will look next time to see if they are still there.  If I remember to take one of my rods I can determine which set has the wrong threads.

Would a M1 Garand pull through work or did they make a similar one for an 03 or 1917?

Here is a M1 Garand pull through all rolled up.  The pull through goes into a tube.  One side of the tube holds the pull through and the other side holds oil.  Your gun is pre WWI so I would look at guns used in that period.

According to the ’95 book it would take the U.S Govt. cleaner  

Yes, but it may look just like one of the others.   The Lee came out in about 1895 so it could be very close in style.

Here’s a photo of the U.S. Government cleaner for the 1895 carbine.  Photo is from the Madis book.
