MODEL 1888 ROD BAYONET TRAPDOOR CLEANING ROD TIP:  The Model 1888 Springfield “Rod Bayonet” Rifle featured a combination round bayonet and cleaning rod.  When the rod was employed as a cleaning rod, it required a specially designed threaded tip that attached to the lower end of the rod, which was carried in the butt trap with the headless shell extractor and the Model 1879 Combination Tool. 

This tip features clear, sharp checkering and still retains much of its original blue armory applied finish.   

These tips have become increasingly difficult to find on the loose and are a necessary appendage to complete your Model 1888 Rifle.  (0208)  $165
