Best Shotgun Cleaning Brush - Need Help Locating Login/Join

I'm an LE Shotgun Armorer. We have these rod/brushes laying around that work very well. All of my Google-Fu cannot find how to re-order. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The label says "HODGE-F-ORIGINAL" and "Choke & Chamber Brushes". My memory says there were out of New Jersey (but that is suspect Wink ).

This rod/brush combo is the only thing I've found which will hold up to cleaning 10 12 ga. barrels a week. This rod has a composite reinforced shaft and a 3" long bronze brush which is slightly over-sized.

Thank you in advance for your help!

I can’t tell from the photo what the overall tool looks like, but I use a Dewey nonrotating chamber rod for the purpose.

Chamber brushes are available separately.

Slight thread drift:

FWIW I have two, the newest is 15 years old.

Tornado brushes are great, IMO, for cleaning smoothbores. My shotgun barrel actually gets limited cleaning (mostly because I use it so seldom), but I use an appropriately sized Tornado to clean revolver chambers. Long ago when my issued duty ammunition was 38 Special FMJ with sealed case mouths, the sealant would build up at the front of the chambers and was impervious to all the solvents I tried. I finally discovered the Tornado brushes, and I would just scrub them back and forth to remove the buildup. In time I no longer had that ammunition, but the brushes also work well to remove leading in the chambers.
