Thanks for the feedback. Those are brass/bronze bristles. I need the old boar (black) bristle brush. They are also shorter which is the only way to fit ten of them into the older squad kits with the wood insert.
I do appreciate your suggestion and keep an eye out.

I bought 20 USGI brass 45 brushes and 10 fit just fine in the park'd compartmentalized box but it's s no-go in the blued box. Finally found a picture of an original box and it has the boar bristled brushes which are shorter. Thinking of buying the Pro-Shot nylon brushes just so it sort of looks right but mainly so I can get the lid shut.
