The Mosin Nagant Cleaning Kit

It is not recommended to use the cleaning kit or the cleaning rod from the rifle to clean your Mosin rifle. A good commercial cleaning rod and kit should be used and cleaned from the breach of the rifle. This is for informational purposes only.

The tool is used for multiple uses. 1) Setting the firing pin stick out. (covered in the cleaning area) 2) Tightening the Jag onto the cleaning rod (covered here) 3) Help in removal of a bayonet (not covered)

Mosin Nagant Muzzel Protector choices There are two "basic" lengths of muzzle protectors. Long and short. The short one is for the carbines as pictured above. The short one can be used on the M91/30 also, but the long one it too long for the carbine.
