or is it ?

Now as far as I'm aware these came in a small leather case, this came up on Ebay cheap..........

was described as

Browning Automatic Rifle cleaning kit

as far as he was aware it was complete, and came with everything shown I have no idea if it is complete or not ?

I thought it was worth a punt

so is it a B.A.R Kit ?....or if not what is it from ?

I'm not worried if it aint as it was the grand amount of £16.99 !

out to the experts

IIRC from very briefly scanning through the FM, the leather case is for spare parts and fits in a mag pouch, with the tool roll here (or the M4, M6 or such) being for the cleaning kit.

But at that price, you can certainly afford to add any little bits that *are* missing!!

Cheers,

Lloyd'y,

Did'nt think it was a US one, but for the price it was worth it, I'll bung the spare parts in my leather pouch as a filler

Regards

Les
