        I am a machinist and ive considered making some cleaning rod mounts for the AR platform that would be various types of rail mounted. I currently use riggers bands to mount one on my rifle i also own a rapid rod that is in my assault pack with other maintenance items. Is this a solution looking for a problem?? Just getting feel if anyone would be interested.

          I am interested in an MLOk solution.

            I use cut pieces of bicycle tire innertubes.

            Run it on the right side under the dust cover to the buffer tube.

            If you are making one, I would be interested but it would have to be sleek, ergonomic, light and affordable.

              I just keep a sectional one in my pack with my spare parts.

                I used to keep one there too, but when my rifle went down with a stuck case, it either took to long to get it out of my pack or I had left my pack in the patrol base.

                So with it attached, if a case gets stuck just whip it out like a muzzleloader’s ramrod and knock the case out.

                Only happened to me twice. Once was due to a shitty re-arsenaled M16-A1 with very worn parts.

                However, it has happened with many of those around me even using brass cased ammo.

                  I’d be interested to see what you come up with.

                    All the better rifles have these already.

                        Quiet. This is a First World conversation.

                        An MLOK and Picatinny mount would be handy.
