    arr = Braunschweigische Blechwarenfabrik.

    The lead ball is not part of the kit. Not sure about the oil bottle and brush either.

    But a nice buy at that price.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hello,
    It is not a "Mauser k98 cleaning kit", it is a RG34 that was used to clean several weapons including of course the K98k, but also the G41/G43, P08/P38 etc....
    Thanks

    Yep it's the later style oil bottle and brush, the oil bottle was used for the No.4 later on in the war and then was also used with the SLR in post war use.
