Weapon Cleaning Rods,etc.

Recommended Posts

I've had these in the shed for quite a while, can anyone shed(no pun intended) any light on which gun they were for, or a general use item. Several different pieces, size etc.IMG_20190428_143458.thumb.jpg.0f3894b58d3173830cedaa05784b1c8d.jpg

What width are the rods? This would give size of bore which helps  a lot.

Handles look like barrel brush holders, you screw extensions on to get correct length

Used to get them in SLR and LMG/GPMG cleaning kits

Thank you, seems a bit extreme though. 😀

It is used right up the Gas Plug Bore.

I think you mean for cleaning the Gas Cylinder.   Used as a Reamer to remove the carbon.

No, The Drill bit as I said. Was used as a 'Reamer' up THE GAS PLUG BORE. To remove carbon.

The gas 'Cylinder' is also removable, & there is a dedicated Bronze bristle brush to clean the MUCH WIDER

'Bore' of that. This brush has a twisted galvanised steel handle & retains the Bronze Bristles at the same time.

It is therefore one piece.

Is the reamer at 12 o'clock used to de-carbon the gas cylinder

No, It is ALSO used to clean the Gas port in the GAS BLOCK. At 12 o'clock.

As well as up the Bore of the GAS PLUG, to remove Carbon deposit's.

As mentioned previously, the GAS CYLINDER has it's own dedicated BRUSH for cleaning.

That was the original A1 kit. The L85A2 has the twisted bristle wire brush As I explained.

The original Poster enquired what the 'Drill Bit' was for in His post.

I explained.

The cleaning kit for the A2 has a totally different pulthrough. (Know as a Bore snake)

& the cleaning rod is the Looped handle as seen in the posters photo's. The one with the folding

Handle in your Photo, is from the A1 Kit.

Brush no.3 is an old SLR debris brush, with Nylon Bristles. The L85/ SA80 is a bigger green plastic handle. With a soft Bristle head.

Error: The No.4 in your lower pic is NOT a 'SUSAT Zeroing spanner.' It is a zeroing screw

Locknut Spanner. The zeroing of the screw is performed by the No.7 Screwdriver.
