3/32" will work. At the same hobby store that I found that, I also found a brass rod that is 3mm and it seems to be almost an identical match. I used the 3mm, bent the 90* for the front, added the 1.25" to the stock rod length, cut, and it all works perfectly. Thanks!

The one Rainman kit we have is a 1/8" rod (measured yesterday). I'm going to try a 1/8" stainless, even if I have to polish it down. Even a 1/8" is a little skinny for a #6 thread on the end (which is my pump end). Being a luke's rail anyway, I shouldn't have a problem. 3/32" brass looked a bit wimpy, especially if it were ever loaned out.
some things are stickier than others

I swapped all but one of my pump mags out with brass rods. If you have the marker tuned right the rod will last a very long time and because brass is softer then SS, no worries about chew up the bolt itself. I haven't be able to wear out any of the rods thus far and I pushed out a good 800 rounds this last TB on one of my pumps with no ware to speak of on the bolt or the end of the rod itself
