No clue what this is

Question

My good lady describes it as a military potato masher!

 

M3 1015999641304 CLNG TOOL

 

I would like to thank Clive Elliot and SirHC for all the help they have given so far, sadly this one escapes me

Robin, it is a Cleaning tool, breech FL17955

 

Note not FV, but FL from the MOD (Army) Army Scaling & Cataloguing Authority, Central Drawing Issues TMD 6.

 

M3 is the DMC for stores common to artillery equipment

Clive,

 

I am using your extensive notes on this site to narrow down what items are.

 

Yes i knew that CLNG meant cleaning, I was just posting what the label said.

 

Ok so for what breech is it to clean?

Wasn't the L2A1 the license-built FALO (heavy barrel SLR)?

 

That thing looks far too big for that kind of jobbie. I'm confused :confused: :???

Also seems to be British nomencature for AT4 84mm One shot anti tank projectile.

 

Designated L2A1 (ILAW) (AT4 CS with high penetration warhead), used by the British Army.

but that was a one shot weapon, with a disposable launcher, ((recoiless rifle type principle.)

I think the reason the designation crops up on a range of different items is that it is analogous to No. 2 Mk 1 etc

It's definately NOT a Tool for Smallarms. It is probably for Ordanance, IE: Anything that is Artillery based main armamant. I must confess I have never seen one of these. :nut:

But then again, Im used to using all the Smallarms equipment as an Armourer. :D

So, are we saying that this is a reamer / cleaning tool for the 30mm in Warrior, is that the definitive answer?
