THREE PIECE CLEANING ROD SET FOR THE SPRINGFIELD MODEL 1886 24 BARREL EXPERIMENTAL TRAPDOOR CARBINE:  An appendage almost never found on the loose, the three section cleaning rod for the Model 1886 24 Experimental Carbine is notably longer each section measuring 9 long - than the shorter, 8 long, set issued with the Model 1879 1890 Trapdoor Carbines.  With an original production of only 1,000 of these Experimental Carbines, coupled with the ease in which these longer cleaning rod sections could have been separated from the carbines, finding a proper set to display with your Model 1886 Carbine has become almost impossible.   

This is an exact recreation of this rare cleaning rod set made of high quality steel and manufactured in a very limited quantity by a master machinist using an original set as the pattern.  Correct in everyway, to include the properly cut and sized threads, except for the new condition and lack of finish, these rods are undetectable from the originals.    

This is a very limited opportunity to complete your Model 1886 Experimental Trapdoor Carbine and when these few sets are sold, that will be the end of this supply.  $100
