Re: 1866 springfield 50-70 short rifle

Correct rod length for the M1866 Rifle, Short is 34.75" and correct diameter is .230" - same as the full-sized rifle. You will have a VERY tough time finding an original. Full-length rods are not easy to come by. Try the parts suppliers on this website, and, if you have to cut one, cut a repro, please.
