....but get a good Dewey coated cleaning rod and bore guide for actually cleaning your rifle. Its been shown that the civilian type cleaning of a barrel with a steel rod will not degrade the barrel crown but for peice of mind use a coated rod.

Thanks. Is this the right one?

I've found the Bill Riccas... look great.

See the link above still in the GI contractor shipping box. $16 or $18 depending on which package you want. You will need the plastic oiler to complete the kit.

Thank you.

It's especially great that these appear to be original issue.

My turn.

One image in a previous post shows what appears to be two chamber cleaning tools. One is slotted for what would assume to be for a patch, the other has a brass brush. Then there is the rod segments, tip, brush, and handle.

Elsewhere mention was made of a thong, which I figure to be a 'pull through' cleaning tool. The only thing missing is a bottle of Hoppes No 9.

Thats a lot of stuff to fit into a small storage space.

Were the chamber tools issued for a 'squad' or the individual? Which tool, slotted, brush, or both?

Thank you for tolerating this rookie's ignorance.

Post #4 above shows an assortment of tools, not all of which would fit in an M1 rifle stock at once. The Reader's Digest version of the story is that one of the two stock holes holds an oiler tube - either plastic or nickel-plated brass; and the other holds either an M3A1 tool (or variant thereof) or a set of sectioned cleaning rods.

The two M3 tools (with slotted tip or with a brush) are different versions of the same tool. The brush equipped version is called the M3A1 and replaced the slotted patch holder version which was called the M3.
