Rifle cleaning kit

#1
Hello chaps,
Can some one please tell me what the part number is for the new kit, as ive had a little search for it and can't find it.
If i can get the part number i can order it as my SQ has no idea what im on about, Cheers.

Are you on about the operational supplymentry cleaning kit that comes in a zip up pouch and only contains an oilbottle and the new pull through

That's the one I'm after if you have the NSN for it & the bits inside.

What's Army policy on cleaning rifles with non-issue gear nowadays? One thing that never seemed to get done back in my day was removing copper fouling. Whilst a pull through with an oily piece of flannelette is ok on a daily basis, a good scrub out with copper removing solution is best practice after heavy use or every few hundred rounds at least.
I've found the Forrest Bore Foam very good for this in my civvy shooting. I'd though it was a gimmick but I rate it over everything else now. Looking it up for the link I see that they do a similar product for everything up to artillery.

A cleaning rod with a phospor bronze brush is another requirement. I seem to remember that SA80 was issued with sectional rods but that it would need three or four of you to get together enough bits for a proper scrub out.
