Cleaning Kit diagram

I just picked up the butt stock cleaning kit for my M1 today. Anybody have any diagrams on how they were kept in the butt?

Here's a link to a picture: ... essory.jpg

This site has a BUNCH of good M! info on it.

The picture may not be clear in that the lower hole has the long nickel plated or amber plastic oiler in it.

The front of the oiler is full of oil, the rear has the M10 cleaning rod handle, padded with patches in it.

In the upper hole is the canvas tube holding the four sections of the cleaning rod, and the bore brush and loop tip, joined by a short section of white tubing.

"So where does the combo tool go?"

Butt stock storage varied depending on what was available, and often, personal preference.

What you got in the way of gear was what Supply had available.

The "standard" is shown in the link, BUT often the oiler tube and handle were sometimes replaced with the M3 combination tool.

In other words, once out of boot camp, and especially in combat, what you put in the butt trap was mostly up to you.

Extra cleaning gear like bore solvent, cans of oil, patches, extra bore brushes, action brushes, and often the combination tool were usually carried in the field pack.

Butt Stock Storage

He-He, we put it in any way it would fit. As strict as the Marines were I cannot remember being instructed as to how the stuff should be stored. One thing I do recall is that one hole was "shorter" than the other and would hold only the oiler and the cleaning rods, etc. naturally went in the other.

Garand cleaning rods.

I recently got a cleaning kit for my Garand and two of the rods have nylon buffers on them, is this new? I have had many cleaning kits but have never seen the nylon, plus they are larger than the bore.

Thanks and feel free to email me.

That was a later addition. Many M1 users never saw one.

The white nylon disk is a muzzle protector to prevent hitting the end of the muzzle.
Usually you only got one on one rod section.

Another item many people don't recognize is a short section of clear-white tubing.
This was used to join the cleaning rod loop tip and the bore brush together by the threaded ends.
This made it easier to store them in the canvas tube pouch.
