Original pre-WWI “tube type” cleaning kit for M1903 Springfield rifle – these were carried in the butt trap of M1903 and M1917 rifles, thus the slim tubular shape. I have thee (3) such cleaning kits; all are nearly identical with similar amount of wear. The kit’s tube is nickel-plated brass, included within are the wire bore brush and a brass pull that is slotted for a patch and threaded for a cleaning brush. The other end has an oil reservoir with an oil-drop pin. One of the caps has a leather pad on one end to prevent the kit from rattling in the butt trap. The tube is about 6″ / 15.2 cm overall; all parts are tight.
This WW1 US M1903 Springfield cleaning kit was part of the diverse collection of militaria items that I’ve recently purchased spanning from WW1 to the War in Vietnam. This personal collection contains many interesting items, some are unique, but there is just too much work to list it all at the same time. Please check out my site periodically for new arrivals; I’ll be listing more items in the next few weeks. This original WW1 US M1903 Springfield cleaning kit is in 100% serviceable condition still; with proper care it will last you another 100 years 😉
This original WW1 US M1903 Springfield cleaning kit has not been cleaned or tampered with in any way, it is in 100% original “as is” condition. These are the actual photos. I have a few more original WW1 era American, British, and German militaria collectables, as well as several scarce WW1 and WW2 fighting daggers and trench knives from other countries available for sale – please take a look in the store’s Militaria section.
