    Question: 1930s Government Model cleaning rods

    Hi folks,

    A simple question:
    what is the correct cleaning rod to be found with a Colt Government Model sold in late 1930s ???
    I need one to rund up a full rig (more about it later) and would like to get a correct example.
    Thanks in advance.

    It would probably have been a bristle brush cleaning rod made of twisted wire with a loop handle.

    Something like this, but shorter (this one is for a 6" post WWII Colt revolver).

    Johnny,
    Thank you very much.
    Are these difficult to find?

    You normally find things like this in the junk boxes at gun shows. This one happens to be in the original paper sleeve with the keychain three blade Colt screwdriver.

    I was once informed by an old Colt employee that these brushes were made by the Fuller Brush Company. Jackson
