    Default Cleaning rod stamp explanation

    I have a small loop all steel cleaning rod (type found in K date holsters ) with WaA 296 stamp. I am wondering
    what this particular stamp refers to ( manufacturer, etc ) or what?
    Thanks, Dennis

    gunsyte,

    A few pictures would shed some light on what you have. Would really like to see a clear picture of the WaA296 waffenamp. If it is indeed a E/WaA296, that marking would be inconsistent with an original cleaning rod for a K date holster. E/296 maybe correct but we will never know without pictures. The small loop you describe would also be inconsistent for a K date holster as the leather strap securing the rod in the holster would require a wide rectangular loop. Looking forward to see what you have!

    Regards
    Geo.

    Currently I use Dewey rods, but will probably pick up a Hoppe's rod just because I've heard such good things about them here https://cleangunguide.com/best-gun-c...g-rod-reviews/. So many guys swear by them, so I think I will be pleased if I try them.

    George, We need to see the rod. The WaA may be moot if the rod is not an original one.

    WaA 296 may be legitimate, but Bender does not have 296 in his list. Pics
    are necessary.
    All, be well,
