    Hello Gents just a quick question reference cleaning rods for the K98 Mauser? I have seen 2 lengths 10 & 12 inches,does it make any difference to what size I need??. The Missus measured the hole in which the cleaning is housed & that measured roughly 8 inches...So i'm thinking 10 inche cleaning rod..but could I fit a 12 inche one & still attach the bayonet?? I did try to upload a picture of my rifle but it doesn't seem to want to work!!!, Thanks for your time Terry

    The 12 inch would be too long, you must have an early dated rifle.

    They didn't always have them, especially late in the war-you needed 3 of them to make up a useable rod and the Germans had introduced the metal link pull through...
