A long the top: WW2 German, West German and Unified, British GPMG and various SA80 and combined one.

Group lower left: Russian AK74? & Bulgarian AK47 (metal Tubes), Blue canvas - Eastern block?, Mid brown plastic looking pouch I think is East German, Canvas bag and string WW2 Russian?. Tan leather pouch is French and a Swiss one to its right.

Middle: British post WW2 tins .303 and 7.62. WW2 and post oilers and pull throughs.

Group lower right: Post WW2 M1 Carbine, various M16 kits ranging from possible? Vietnam to Gulf Wars. Silver tube - either Springfield or Garand.

However, I am more than happy to be corrected.


Easy to tell an AK-74 cleaning kit, the brush has nylon bristles and is a smaller diameter than AK/AKM brushes.

Just realised that I should have taken pictures of the headstamps and markings on the clips. Just brought Mrs. Blighty back from hospital (nurses flapping a bit and expecting peak in cases in two weeks) so will sort out tomorrow.

Snayperskaya, The brushes look similar in size and 7.62 sized not 5.45mm.

So I assume they are either from different periods or different eastern block states?

This one I assume has to be Russian as the oiler has cyrillics in the centre, would it be WW2?

Looking at the bore guide, it appears to only fit a Mosin-Nagant carbine or Simonov rifle, as the other rifle types have the fore sight too far away from the muzzle (assuming the guide design is to allow it to clip around the fore sight and hold it in place during cleaning). Or is this an extra to the original kit?

Top one as for an AKM/RPK pattern rifle, the kit looks Russian but Romanian/Bulgarian etc and all pretty much the same, and the botton one is definitely for a SKS carbine, the cap acts as a cleaning rod guide on both but the "ears" on the SKS cap fit around the front sight base to hold it in place.

The AKM kit should also have a small pin in it that is used to hold the trigger group components in place when the retaining pins are removed but more often than not these are missing.

Sometimes you'll find an arsenal stamp on the Russian cleaning kits, usually an arrow in a triangle if it's Izhmash or a star if it's Tula, Tula marked kits are usually from a RPK as Izhmash was primarily AKM production.
