I have a T14 cleaning rod with a part broken off. The only picture I could find looks like the broken off part was flat like a thick schrewdriver. I am attempting to post a picture. If anyone has a good picture of the missing end and would post it, I think I can repair mine. Thanks riceone. [/img][img]

Here are some pictures of Two T14 rods and 1 T94 Rod. The T14 rods have the 'Z' shape ends and contoured bases, below the patch cutout, where the T94 rod base, below the patch cutout, is slotted for use as a screwdriver.
Top: T94 rod

Bottom: T14 Rod

Hope that helps, as usual sorry for the poor lighting. Trey

Thanks for the pictures but the part I am missing is the little crank on the end. Is is round or flat like a screwdeiver and is it blunt or sharp like a chisel. riceone.

How is the crank end used on the T14 cleaning rod? Is there a seperate piece to turn it into a more useful tool, like the Arisaka's rod?

I believe it's is used as a loading tool to pull down on the magazine button (and thus follower) for loading purposes. If you'll look at the button, you'll see a cutout that the short straight part of the 'crank' end fits into. Trey
