ca. 1870 US ARMY CLEANING ROD AS ISSUED WITH THE SMITH AND WESSON NO. 3 AMERICAN AND SCHOFIELD REVOLVERS:  As described in detail on page 300 (“Top Rod”) of Gun Tools, Their History and Identification, Shaffer, Rutledge, and Dorsey, this well recognized slotted cleaning was manufactured by Smith and Wesson and provided to the army for issue with both the No. 3 American and both models of the Schofield Revolvers during the Indian War years.   

These are relatively scarce appendages from the early days of the cartridge revolvers and are an important component to complete a display of these historic pistols.  (0683) $95
