    Can anyone who used the rod on an Yugo RPK give a report on how easy/successful it was shorting the rod. Thanks.

    If all you want is the look, just cut the end off until it no longer hits the front trunnion when inserted into it's guides and the knob end fits into the recess under the front sight. Use a hacksaw, cutoff tool on a grinder, dremel, whatever.

    If you want it functionally the same as the Yugo rod, you'll then need to reduce the diameter of the cut end back about an inch, and thread it.
    I have a daughter. I tell her, "911 is what you dial after you're raped. 1911 is what you should have before they try."

    I don't have my barrel pressed in on my Yugo RPK as I'm waiting on go/no-go gauges to arrive from Brownells. I'll post an update on what it takes to make one of these cleaning rods work with it as soon as I can.

    I don't know if it will work that way. The slot for the cleaning patch looks like it'd be right in the way. It's pretty close to the skinny part of the rod. You might end up with a very long skinny fork if you did it like that.

    My plan is to cut it just behind the slot in the rod. Then shorten the other long half till the two pieces combined are at the required legnth. Then chamfer the edges and line them up and reweld them back together. Lastly just file the weld smooth and paint or coat the rod with your covering of choice. I'm going to try to do this where the welded area will be hidden inside the LHG in case it doesn't clean up well.
