Just doesn't look right !!

Are they supposed to fit like that
A ramrod without any attachments should not extend beyond the muzzle. Other than getting a tip dirty, there should not be a problem. Actually the tip should sit back about 1/4" from the end of the muzzle. Recently saw a SideLock whose rod extended about 4" past the muzzle. Looked like you know what, on a white horse. .....

On my in-line hunter, I have added a T-handle extension and have it covered and it does show power burns that I can live with.

I routinely restore or remake ramrods for SideLocks and a few in-lines. I try to stay back no more than 1/4" from the end but some may have to go flush.

Be Safe !!!
'Fundamental truths' are easy to recognize because they are verified daily through simple observation and thus, require no testing.
