All .22 Caliber Nylon Coated Rods have 8/36 Male Threads, an outside diameter of approximately .210 inches, and a dual track ball bearing handle. The Nylon will not peel or pick up abrasives of any kind. All rods are single piece rods unless otherwise stated. We use male threads because they allow for a coating 7-9 times thicker than female threaded rods. The connection between the male thread and rod attachment is much stronger, as well. The .22 caliber coated rods are the correct diameter for use in the very popular 6.5mm on the market.
Please note: .22 Rim and CZ Users – We recommend using .20 caliber cleaning rods, as the .22 caliber rods have been found to be at times too large to fit through those tight barrels. When ordering a .20 caliber rod for use with .22 caliber jags, mops, brushes, etc, you will need to order the 17A adapter.
Also note: Please use short length brushes with small diameter rods – it puts less stress on the cleaning rod.
