    As Danny has said the drill bit cleans the gas plug, the long blade is the reamer for cleaning the gas cylinder. The little pin thing in the circular part is for cleaning the vent holes in the cylinder. The screw driver bit on the main part is just that for the various sight screws etc. Below the screw driver bit is a projection which is used to adjust the gas plug setting (gets very hot so dont want to adjust with the fingers). The little notch is used to unscrew the cleaning rods and I think the big u notch is used to adjust the back sight.
