British, Armourers Chamber Cleaning Sticks for .303" & 7.62mm We

These are British Army Armourers chamber cleaning sticks for .303" & 7.62mm weapons.

Turned from solid beech wood, these sticks are in new unissued condition. The design of these sticks has not changed since probably Victorian times, I believe these to be of recent manufacture, although as these are rarely if ever dated this is of little importance. The sticks have a slit cut lengthways through the front part and a piece of flannelette is inserted in the slit, wrapped around the nose of the stick and then the nose is thrust into the chamber of the barrel. The shape of the nose part ensures that the chamber is tightly packed with flannelette and by rotating the stick the chamber can be efficiently cleaned.

These sticks were on issue until quite recently to British Army Armourers and in addition formed part of the Complete Equipment Schedule (CES) for a number of weapons including the .303" BREN gun, the No4(T) Sniper rifle and the 7.62mm L42A1 & L96A1 Sniper rifles.
