Slightly Off Topic - Roberts Conversion Cleaning Rod

Posted by Art Todd on Saturday, 15 April 2017, at 9:52 p.m.

I have recently acquired a Roberts conversion of an 1861 pattern musket which is missing the cleaning rod. The stock has the provision for the "swelled" rod but because of the way the block drops into the stock at the breech, a standard 1861 pattern rod is too long. Does anyone have the proper rod length and thread size? I'm assuming that the 1861 pattern rods were cut down and threaded for the Roberts thus using the same retaining system. Thanks for any input!
