Whether your US military rifle is an original GI issue or a reproduction you will want to take good care of it and prevent any damage that could affect the accuracy that was built into it. The GI style cleaning kits that fit into the butt of your M1 Garand or M14/M1A are definitely something you might want to own so your rifle will be “as issued” and historically accurate. However the multi piece rods in those kits can damage the bore and muzzle crown of your prized rifle.
That is why you will want to do the actual cleaning with more modern tools like this J. Dewey Field Kit with it’s nylon coated cable which is designed to be pulled through the bore from breech to muzzle in order to:
1 – Prevent possible damage to the rifling in the bore and at the muzzle crown.
2 – Prevent cleaning fluids and grime from getting down into the action of your rifle where they can cause stickiness and other problems with the trigger pull.
