Long ramrod needed
« on: April 30, 2018, 02:05:06 PM »
Does anyone know where I could find a ramrod for a 51" barrel? Metal and/or hickory.

I believe Rice Barrels will make you one, my 48 inch ones are great.

You might consider going to a lumber place and buying a 4" wide hickory board and splitting it and making your own.

Ditto the Rice Barrel rods.  I have several.   They're great.  http://www.ricebarrels.com/other%20products.html

They only have a 36" and 48" option, though you might inquire if they can make a longer one.  Otherwise, they might make you a short extension upon request.  Something with the same thread tapped into each end, and you can join them with a short threaded coupler.
If it was easy, everyone would do it.

If you are open to fiberglass or carbon:

UP to 72".  IF you are concerned about abrasiveness put some shrink tubing over it.
