Default M14A1 maintenance case

I picked up one of these NOS cleaning equipment cases from a vendor on ebay. Not that easy to find and mine came with the protective sleeve for the bore brush too. They are marked:

CASE, MAINTENANCE EQUIPMENT
SMALL ARMS, M14-A1
DSA 100 70 C 0941

Made by the Lady Mac Corset co, Inc.

Got one from that vendor, also.
Very cool way to carry your M14 cleaning gear if you don't want it in the buttstock, or have an M14A1, EBR, Veltor, etc, stock...... CC

That is a very different unit from the original Vietnam era pieces, dprice. Not the original, but perhaps an authorized replacement. Interesting...... CC

"Case, Small Arms Accessories 7790630" that Charlie's Surplus has listed is not specific to M14 Series Rifles. It was widely issued for M79 / M203 40MM Grenade Launcher Cleaning / Maintenance Equipment.

Stay Safe,

Frank

The later issue M16 case keeps everything from getting lost, and they are cheap.

This is the M14 cleaning kit:

Be advised that using a sectioned cleaning rod can lap the bore if used constantly.

For normal cleaning get a Dewey one piece coated cleaning rod and a guide for it.

100% correct. This pouch was also produced in web circa 1963. Many dealers lied about it and put Garand and M14 Cleaning Kits inside.

It was never used in the Garand or M14 series.

I did the same thing when I wanted to create a M1A cleaning kit. But after I got the issue kit I still had a pile of cleaning gear still on the table.

Here is what I had to fit in the USGI kit:



So... I made my own kit:
