Pro-Shot Cleaning Rods are manufactured by Pro-Shot with American made exclusive spec Stainless Steel and hae a proprietary mirrorlike jeweled finish. A Pro-Shot rod is more dense and hardened due to added steps in the rod manufacturing processes. It is still slightly less hard than barrel steel. Each rod is carefully hand crafted and micro polished in addition to Pro-Shot's centerless grind and polishing steps. The hardened dense jeweled mirrorlike finish of the rods does not pick up and carry abrasive grit, dirt, or fouling through the bore. This makes the Pro-Shot micro-polished rod the best type of gun cleaning rod available in the market. Micro-polished precision stainless steel cleaning Pro-Shot rods are durable and are used by accuracy minded shooters worldwide. Rugged precision threading for no wobble attachment of rod tip accessories. No adaptor needed for these rods! Proprietary Rod handle design (Pat. Pending) allows the rod to rotate in the handle, allowing the bore brush to spiral with the rifling and clean the grooves of the rifling completely. The rod length stated is the actual working length which is 36 inches. Add 4 inches for the handle.
