Default .22 caliber cleaning kit

This can is a nice find, its a .22 caliber cleaning kit, notice the size of the cleaning brush and the ends of the cleaning chain. I think somewhere I also have an extra .22 chain.

Default Late war

Here are two late war cans one marked rco 45 and the other 64, both are waffen ampted ( I have no idea what "64" means ). In the "64" the chain and late war oiler were found... notice the finish of the chain!

Nice cans all and a good thread idea Willi. Wow Robert, that .22 can has to be scarce.

Very nice Robert. That .22 kit is very unique, same maker as the one started this thread with......G.Appel. Those Bakelite kits are also unique, I suspect the marked one could be commercial.

Thanks!

Default 1945 cleaning kit

Willi,
I also have a 1945 dated M34 cleaning kit. The ordnance tan finish is not as clean as your example. The 3 letter code is very faint and hard to make out but they appear to be 'bco'. It has all the contents (including sheet metal oiler) and also includes a small brush with a twisted wire handle that resembles a miniature traditional style broom.

Great site Carl!

Ed, nice to see you on the fourm, welcome. Hope all is well down there in paradise.

I suspect that your tan kit is marked "rco45". My takedown tool is also marked "rco45".

Willi
