My rod tucks neatly under the barrel and is about 1/2" shorter than the barrel. Unfortunately, that's too short to be of use most of the time. I have a Remington Genesis, and the provided rod can be used for seating a hunting load, but is unhandy, since I have to unscrew a 4" section of the end, flip it, and screw it back on, before it will reach the breech. But for cleaning or swabbing, it wont reach, and is very unhandy for loading sabots or smaller target loads, as it doesn't leave much exposed rod to work with. When practicing, I have an extra, longer rod that I take along. So you might find that you need that little extra length of rod, even if it does get blackened after shooting.
