K98 cleaning rod - which one?

Hello: I'm new to this forum and my question is quick - I have an original K98 Mauser marked byf 1942 on the receiver. I believe it is a "russian capture" but it has locking screws, front sight hood, but no cleaning rod. All the numbers do not match.

Could someone please tell me what length cleaning rod would be correct and where I could obtain one? I'd be happy to obtain a "replica" and also a sling.

Thanks for the information.
Thanks Curt. I've done a little more research and it does appear that my byf/42 will take a 12.5" rod although I haven't determined that yet but will do soon.
