As noted, each Thompson cleaning rod offered by Keepshooting.com is an original cleaning rod that was reimported into the United States after being shipped overseas as part of the Lend-Lease program. These cleaning rods feature a full brass construction and measure approximately 16 1/2 inches in length, sporting a looped end for pushing and pulling the rod through the barrel. The tip of the cleaning rod is threaded to accept standard .45-caliber brushes but does not include a slotted end.
Spare parts are an important consideration when it comes to firearms. Like any machine, firearms rely on a series of parts to function properly. But no matter how well-built your firearm is proper functioning is severely impeded by the fouling that occurs from routine firing, which begs routine cleaning. For that reason, the Thompson cleaning rod is a very desirable accessory for any Thompson submachine gun.

A real surplus item. Solid brass will not harm your barrel, but is strong and stiff enough for all cleaning chores. Too short for my semi Thompson, but I find I use it for other guns. It is very handy and a great price.
