Cleaning kit help

Recommended Posts

Hello chaps, 

 

just picked up this wonderful cleaning kit. Could anyone tell me the purpose of the silver tools? I know the snap caps but what is the little silver pot for? It has what looks like a turn key when you unscrew it. 

 

The other tool tool I have no idea. 

 

Maybe you can help me?

The tool on the right  is a cartridge extractor. Removing swollen paper cased cartridges when stuck in the chambers. 

The pot is a oil bottle, the 'turn key' you refer to is for putting a drop of oil where you want it. Thus named a Dropper.

That's a nice kit. Not often that you get a cartridge extractor included in kits these days.

Yep it baffled me, never seen one before. 

Must have been sat in storage for quite some time.

Vintage cartridge extractors have become quite collectible. Even more so, if they are a well known make.  I have a couple in 16g and one in 12g.
