Remington Smoot Cleaning Rod/Accessories

Post by llyc » Tue Mar 26, 2019 5:14 am

I recently acquired a presentation case for a #1 or #2 Smoot does anyone know where I could find photos of the cleaning rod or accessories that would be correct?
Thanks

I can check but I wouldn't hold my breath, I had 2 reloading kits in the boxes.
I'm thinking they might not have been different then the DD's.

llyc; I think I may have misled you on the cleaning rod picture above.
The "L" shaped rod I believe is Colt from a Open Top .22. See the pictures here.
The box shows a "L" shaped rod. My display shows 2 "L" shaped rods in the center.

Back when I got my 870, I just grabbed a basic Hoppe's kit off the rack, and that's been serving me just fine ever since. All I've really had to replace are things like the patches and solvent when I run out, and every gun shop under the sun seems to stock those. The same goes for the included bottle of Hoppe's gun oil, but since I only use a few drops of that at a time (I prefer the thinner Rem Oil for protecting metal surfaces and Permatex Anti-Seize paste for choke tubes, the Hoppes I only really use for trigger components and the frame rails on my handguns), I have yet to use up that original bottle.

I have augmented that starter kit with a handful of additional items like a 12ga swab, plastic & brass brushes, Q-tips, and fine steel wool, and those come in handy for specific tasks. Some of that steel wool wrapped around an extra bore brush makes for a dandy drill-powered chamber-cleaning tool, and the Q-tips are awesome for digging stuff out of an 870 trigger plate assembly.
