    I have an old Marlin-Ballard #5 Pacific Rifle in .45-70. Unfortunately it is missing the 2 cleaning rod thimbles and the cleaning/wiping rod. As these are almost impossible to find, I'l likely have to make (or have made) these myself, but I want them to look as original as possible. Does anyone out there have any photos they could post of these 2 thimbles and the cleaning/wiping rod and/or the specific dimensions of these parts? Sure would appreciate some help on this. Thanks.
