Recommended Posts

I fly to a lot of matches and space is a premium. 

Does anyone know of a could takedown squib rod.

1/4” threaded rod inside thin walled rubber tubing all bought at Lowe’s or HD gun barrel length +3” 

 

 I have an aluminum Kubotan from Monadnock as a key ring it is 6” x 1/4” diameter and threaded for brushes have had it for 30+ years Mas Ayoob used to suggest them to his 4” carry gun crowd and I can say it works great.

A few steel cleaning rod sections and a 25ACP or .32 casing epoxied on one end and some tubing at the joints to act as a barrel guide and the casing goes up against the loved bullet ?

I carry a 28” carbon arrow with ferrel at both ends. I’ve neber had a squib but I have had a bullet pull out of case and it does the trick.

I just got a brass rod from Lowe's and cut to length.  I think the minimum was 12" but you could get any size they had.  Some want a thicker diameter to avoid deflection and the longer you go the more I would agree with that.

Slide it down the barrel for ultimate compact storage.

 

Also... to be frank, I’ve had exactly one squib in 12 years of reloading 50-100k rounds, and it was 50 rounds after installing my bulletfeeder while figuring things out.

 

I haven’t had a squib rod of any kind in the 4,000 rounds I’ve shot PCC with.

 I am just now realizing I don’t have a squib rod long enough, as I read this, because it’s just not a factor.

 

What are you doing reloadingwise that has you so squib-conscious?

 

In the ultra-rare event that I have one on the road, I’m pretty sure I could round one up from a fellow shooter in an emergency. 👍

I ordered some brass rod and a handle from amazon and but it together for about $8.

Same here. That’s what I did as well.
