At the range, any proper sized dowel will do. In the field a collapsible cleaning rod is a good thing to have, and much more versatile than this item. My field rod is the civilian version of the AR military rod with an extra element to make it long enough. Why spend money when you probably have a suitable rod in your gun maintenance kit?
A guy at the range has a piece of brass that's smaller than 20 ga in diameter and about three inches long. I think its a piece of an old brass drift. He carries it in one of the shell holder loops in his vest. If a wad sticks, he just opens the gun and flicks it down the barrel. Out comes the wad and metal. Much easier than carrying some folding rod. He can use it on automatics as well. He slips it down the muzzle. There is no damage to the bolt face as the wad cushions and protects it. Wish I had one. It is not a commercial object, just a piece of metal he picked up somewhere.
