I was reading a 2007 thread on another forum about cleaning rods for the Dutch Mannlicher. Apparently the rod is missing from most of these rifles, although the cause is arguable.

Guisan posted the following dimensions for the rod. I was wondering if there is someone out there with a machine shop who would be interested in making a replica?

Rod Info.

19.3” (49 cm) long
.19” diameter
.20” head diameter
l.2” head length
.45” cut length
.07” cut width
.12” head hole diameter
.34” thread length
M4 x .70 metric thread

I haven't had any luck finding a Dutch Mannlicher cleaning rod. Apparently they are few and far between.

I decided to substitute something else that would at least look approximately right,

I discovered that a Turkish Mauser rod was the correct diameter, so I ordered one from Liberty Tree Collectors.

It was too long so I cut several inches off the end and re-threaded it with my die set.

It may not be exactly right, but at least now the rifle looks complete.
