High quality, American made ramrod for Armisport 1842 Springfield rifled musket. These rods are identical to our standard smooth bore m1842 rod, except the end of these rods are "cupped" to accommodate the ramming of minie balls in rifled-and-sighted '42s. These reproduction ramrods are made in the U.S.A. They will fit both original and reproduction guns. These rods are made to withstand heavy handling as they are soldered; not crimped such as the Italian reproductions are. Threaded end.
