    .45 Parker Hale jag wanted.

    Does anyone have a .45/.44 Parker Hale jag they are willing to sell to me, I have been trying to get a new one for several weeks without any luck, it appears that they no longer supply jags in this calibre which is a pain in the butt.
    I can get a USA manufactured jag but they don't fit the Parker Hale cleaning rod I use, I don't like the USA cleaning rods as most appear to be plain steel rods which in my view could damage the bore.

    I've had similar problem in the past, you can get brass thread adapters ready made ( I picked one up at Kempton ) or get a local machinist to lathe one up as I've also done 5 each last year bud.

    Have you tried a .410" jag? (If it fits your rod). I'm not keen on jags less than about 20 bore especially when the patch can come adrift in the barrel of a muzzleloading rifle.
    I find that a wire loop is the best option for the smaller bores.

    I got my last loop from that auction site from a firm called lifeintheoutdoors.

    Hi.
    I want the jag to use in the cleaning process for my .45 black powder revolver, so getting it stuck in the barrel is not a consideration, i wouldn't want to use one on any of my muzzle loading rifles.

    Just another idea,
    You could try Reloading.org.uk, they may have something in stock or... I was after an 8g flat bottomed jag and a breach scraper for the blunderbuss and they made me them from my own dimensions. Very quick and very good workmanship... but not cheap around 40 each with postage ? Not much choice, 8g cleaning gear like that is as hard to find as the proverbial.

    Hi. enfield 2band.
    thank you for the offer but the one I am looking for is a .45 calibre to clean a Ruger Old Army black powder revolver.
    somebody will be looking for a .38 brush as P.H. don't appear to do these cleaning brushes anymore.
    Thanks very much for the offer.
    Regards jeff
