Original Winchester three piece cleaning rod for the famed 1873 saddle ring carbine. Each carbine in .38-40 or .44-40 caliber had a sliding brass door compartment in the butt plate and was equipped with a cleaning rod consisting of three pieces with screw threaded ends. Since these rods added weight and often rattled inside the butt stock, it was common practice to remove them. Today, they are next to impossible to obtain. This original set consists of one slotted end section, one double threaded mid section and one end section with correct brass knob. It is in excellent uncleaned and unpolished condition.
