Anyone have pictures or info as to the kit that should be in the spare barrel bag.
I am after kitting it out with as much as I can (as and when I can afford)

The barrel bag should hold:

Inside: Spare barrel, Cylinder cleaning rod or stick.

Outside:
From top/flap end...

Top left: Mop, wire brush, gas cylinder fouling tool and mag cleaning brush.
Top centre: Single pull through.
Top right: Oil bottle (graphite grease)

Centre pocket: Spare parts wallet.

Bottom: Oil can.

The spare parts wallet contains:

Combination tool MkI or II, Oil can, Double pull through and cloths and the Spare Parts Tin.

Spare Parts Tin:
Gas regulator reamers, ruptured case extractor, wire gauze, firing pin guage, spare extractor and spring, spare firing pin and spring.

There are variations to the above depending on the date.. and of course current firearms regulations.....

Hope that helps,

And dont forget to stuff it out with every thing else, I've read that they would put all the spare parts they could get their hands on into the spares tin and bag.
