Flexible cleaning rods

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

I'm having difficulty locating a flexible cleaning rod for my 1895G 45-70. Can anybody point me in the right direction? I've tried MidwayUSA, Midsouth, Brownell's, Gamaliel's, and Graf's. I also need some sort of bore guide for the chamber.

"Flexible", as in wanting to clean from the ejection port without removing the bolt? If so, some of the carbon fiber rods might be suitable, but I don't really know if they're THAT flexible. But, I know a boresnake would be suitable:

The only one I've ever seen was a short Hoppe's nylon chamber brush type.

Sinclair makes bore guides for the 1895, but they work on the assumption that you remover the bolt (big screw on the lever; pull lever, remove bolt, reach in and remove ejector). It's not all that hard, and once you do it, you no longer need a flexible rod.

For cable pull-through cleaning, Otis make field cleaning kits with plastic-coated steel cables and pull-through brushes and patches. Scroll down here to see examples. These have been around for awhile.
