Best way to carry it and make it smaller to a more compact size ?????
Probably not much smaller than the operational cleaning kit size.
clip it box or tupperware
That what i used got it all in including a fair sized piece of rag
One of them little plastic (tupperware?) beakers with a lid, resealable plastic bag for your oil bottle, fits snugly into an ammo pouch with room to spare and keeps it waterproof.
techno have you seen the operational version of the cleaning kit, smaller than a tupperwear box and zips around outside ?
I have a nice little pouch from kitmonster, made of green webbing and velcro, just the right size,.
This one in fact
Yeah, didn't think much of it though (apart from the new oil bottle maybe), and used a little beaker, about the size of a kiddies drinking mug with a screw on lid, used it ever since my first trip to Belize, waterproof and nice and compact I thought.
And the new pull-through as well maybe.
I've seen a couple of people use the green bags you get in blank ammunition cases- keeps it waterproof(-ish), and big enough to get everything in- one bloke used a 1" paintbrush rather than an issued brush, but I guess that's down to personal preference.
1'000 foot flare packing tube with screw on lid gone out of fashion I see...
Anyone here partial to using a 3" paintbrush, with the handle cut off?
Swap it for one of these. Let us know how you get on won't you
Bin yours, use someone else's, jeez no one else thought of that.......................
I did for years.
For starters, bin the issue leaky oil bottle, replace with a little spray one. Much quicker to battle prep with that too.
