John Bivins Ramrod Pipes,
octagon, for 3/8'' rod, wax cast brass or iron
Shown in side view, and top view, these ramrod pipes are octagon, with turned wedding bands at each end, for 3/8" ramrod, in your choice of brass or iron (steel), for fullstock longrifles. They may be easily modified for a halfstock.

Designed by John Bivins, for use on his 1770 Lancaster County style Commonwealth of Pennsylvania - BiCentennial Commemorative Longrifles, these are ideal for use on our Isaac Haines longrifle stocks.

Our entry pipe (where rod enters the wood) has an integral skirt. The pipe body is 1-3/8" length, about 2-3/4" overall, including the skirt. Your choice of wax cast brass or steel. Use our #PIN-3/32" steel dowel pin for mounting the entry pipe on a fullstock or halfstock rifle.

Our forward pipe, with lug for pin, is 1-3/8" overall length. Made for a fullstock rifle (with wood extending to muzzle), most rifles use two forward pipes. A few extra long rifles use three forward pipes. Use one, or sometimes two #PIN-3/32 steel dowel pins, to retain a brass or iron pipe.

Our forward pipe may be modified. Remove the lug before mounting to the rib of a halfstock rifle. File a flat on the pipe, and a matching flat into the rib. Cut the rib deep enough to allow the ramrod to slide smoothly down the inside of the rib, and through the pipe. Tin both flats with solder, cool, clamp in place, then re-heat to sweat solder the two flats together. Wipe off excess solder, using steel wool, while molten. We recommend using our #SOLDER-SB Stay-Brite extra strong solder and flux.

Fullstock rifles, with wood to the muzzle, require one entry pipe, and two forward pipes with pin lugs. Order three mounting pins. Extra long fullstock rifles may use three forward pipes.

Halfstock rifles, with metal underrib to the muzzle, require one entry pipe, and two forward pipes without lugs. Order one mounting pin or one mounting screw, plus solder and flux. Extra long halfstock rifles may use three forward pipes.
