As noted, each SIG Swiss gun cleaning kit is an authentic piece of Swiss military surplus produced by SIG. These cleaning kits were originally developed for and issued alongside SIG PE 57 service rifles to members of the Swiss land forces, which joins the Swiss air force as one of the two main service branches of the military of Switzerland.
Despite the likelihood that each has seen issuance, each of our SIG Swiss gun cleaning kits remains in excellent condition, still capable of being used with any .30-caliber rifle. Though some components, including bore and chamber brushes are visibly used, all remain serviceable and are also easily replaced when worn. Those looking for a piece of collectible Swiss military surplus or an old-fashioned gun cleaning kit for the shop will find the SIG Swiss gun cleaning kit an excellent choice.
The SIG Swiss gun cleaning kit is a unique yet bare-bones cleaning kit that provides all of the essentials for treating your .30-caliber rifle to a routine cleaning. Each of the following components is included with every kit:
- Five-piece segmented cleaning rod with brass guides
- Cleaning rod handle extension
- Bore brush
- Chamber brush
- Jag section
- Inspection mirror
- Two "Automattenfett" grease cans
All components are packed neatly into a vinyl tool roll with fabric ties to ensure closure. These tool rolls are each in excellent condition, free from rips, tears or other defects.
Note: Some cleaning kits may contain tin grease containers, rather than the ribbed plastic containers pictured.
I bought this to toss in my range bag and really was expecting much. Boy, was I surprised! This is a great, high quality kit. The brushes are a little worn but still quite useable. I figured I would have to buy a brush for my 9mm since this is a rifle kit, but no - its in there. In fact, it looks like there is a .45cal brush in there, too. This kit cleans everything but my 12 gauge. This was money well spent!
My wife got me one of these kits a year or so ago. Obviously used, military surplus, but still a quality piece of gear. Grease was still good to use, brushes were worn and needed to be replaced. I'm giving it 4 stars based on that fact. The grease drums alone are worth having, and the segmented rods are sturdy. Easily rolls up for compact storage, or toss it in your bug out bag with the right caliber brushes and you'll be well served.
A great cleaning kit at a great price, I am always happy with Swiss quality products will get a lot of use with this kit, very happy with purchase
This is a great cleaning kit for for the money. I plan keeping this for traveling so that i have a kit for cleaning that doesn't take up too much space. its not super long, but for pistols and shorter rifles it works well.
I'm not a big fan of segmented cleaning rods, but this one is about as sturdy as they come. Everything is high-quality steel with brass spacers to keep your bore and rifling safe. Should anyone be wondering, it's not quite long enough to clean an M91/30 from the breech.
I have two of these laying around. Like most Swiss surplus the cleaning kits are very well built, and very well thought out. However you can expect a little time spending time on the kits for instance, you can expect that whatever grease is in the grease cans to be gummed up, a little solvent will clean it out. Dewey cleaning rods makes an adapter which fits these and adapts them to standard size tips and brushes. Sorry, I do not know the adapter's product number. I find mine very useful for cleaning pistols. For rifles I use a one piece rod; however they are compact so they are good to pack for deer camp.
This is great kit With the typically swiss quality I bought it for my range bag, but ill probably use it at home too. Its used and shows some wear, but its overall in great shape. Just used it to clean my ptr without issue.
The rod seems really sturdy and screws together easily and the brushes still work great. It came with 2 of the plastic grease containers, one is empty and the other is full, i actually used some to grease my ptr so ill see how it works next time i shoot it.
Overall im very pleased with this kit, the quality is great for its size.
I used many hi end kits ,but with this one is like driving a Yugo for 20+years and then getting into F1 car
High quality cleaning kit I found is useful to clean most of my rifles. A fraction of the cost of a brand new cleaning kit. In my opinion, this is a high value purchase that will not be around for long. Get one now, while they are in stock.
