After seeing pictures of box contents for older Colts, I was wondering if any of the pictured brushes were factory Colt. The diameter of the plastic bristles are; top brush, .440; middle brush, .640; bottom brush, .530. They are all twisted steel wire with a loop. Wire diameter; top, .050, middle, .080 and bottom, .070. Length as shown with a scale.
Thank you for your help, I was just curious;

Mike,

I am not the authority on these but will share my opinion. I have received many Colts over the years, both early Pythons and Model 357s that have the bottom two rods in the packages. I have never seen the top rod before but given the length I would say it is for a semi-auto which is why I never seen one.

I am going to place my money on authentic Colt as they are an exact match to what I have in my inventory.

Best of Luck finding a more concrete answer.

The top brush looks like what came with an electric razor I used to have decades ago. The bottom two appear to be genuine Colt brushes. I do not know when Colt quit supplying such brushes, but a guess would be Early-1960s to Mid-1960s.
