    I recently bought two new Dewey coated cleaning rods online to replace those brass POS's. To my horror I find that none of the brushes I have will fit in these things. The .22 rod has a female thread that is too small and the .30 rod has a male thread. Do I have to go buy all new brushes or are there adapters I can buy somewhere.?

    I thought Dewey rods came with the adaptor?

    The ones I bought recently did come with an adapter, which I promptly Loc-Tited into place.

    If you don't do that, they can accidentally become part of the brush, get lost, etc. (Don't ask how I know this...)

    Then I got the short end of the stick. I guess I'll just get some adapters from either Midway or Dewey's online store.
