Original Winchester Cleaning Rods for Winchester 1873 Rifle

This is an original four piece set of cleaning rods for a standard Winchester Model 1873 Rifle with a 24" barrel in calibers 44-40 and 38-40. These fit in the trapdoor compartment of the buttstock. As they added weight to the rifle and had a tendency to rattle, most were removed and over the years. This one has the brass tip which dates it to around 1892 and earlier. They are Very Good Condition with no bends and good threads. Metal has turned to a dark grey with the brass tip tarnished with age.

Item# 1917
