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 Mosin Nagant
cleaning kit consists of Pouch,
Oil/Solvent Can, Muzzle Protector, Jag, 2
part handle assembly, and Tool
(Screwdriver) The Finnish kit may contain
other items such as a brush.
The muzzle protector
comes in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Basically they do the same thing.
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)

lengths of muzzle protectors. Long and

used on the M91/30 also, but the long one
