Check the Possibles Shop
They have Delrin Rods (SUPER TOUGH)
Been there, done that. They have nice ramrods but the same problem. None are extendable. Without the exstention screwed out the ramrod drops out of sight down an emty barrel making it impossible to swab between shots.

I guess I don't understand what extendable means. Can't you just get one tapped on both ends and a T-Handle?
A T handle might work. Good idea Leo. Think Jason has one, I'll see. By extendable I mean the jag end is attatched to a metal rod which slides up into the ramrod. With it screwed in the ramrod is the right length for carrying under the barrel. For cleaning, swabbing the barrel and extra leverage for loading, you twist the jag and the rod slides out and locks in place adding almost an extra 3" to the length of the ramrod. Clear as mud? My Knight MK-85 had one too but the ramrod was a sturdy composite. The Optima's ramrod is not much more than a glorified cheap curtain rod. Hollow, very thin walled and a mighty poor excuse for a ramrod.

Call Cains Outdoors http://www.cainsoutdoor.com/ and check out their super rods. They are top quality. Give them a phone call (1-800-445-1776 ) and talk to the owners, Ed or Scott. If anyone has one or can put you onto one, they can. They even used to manufacture things for people. Very nice people to deal with as well.
Thanks bud. Will do.

Remember the Ark was built by amateurs, the titanic by professionals.
