Great thread! Thanks for the info.
Every single AK-74 cleaning kit.

AKM kits have jags, AK-74 kits have patch pullers.

Yes the cap on some AKM kits can be used as a bore guide. That feature has been omitted on the AK-74. Please PM me pictures and I'll add them in to the OP.

I'm not sold on the piston scraper though. I've tried several kits on several rifles, and no combination yielded results that I'd consider effective. I may be doing it wrong too. As noted above, send me some pics and I'll add them to the OP.

While you're at it, iirc the blades in AKM kits have a notch on the side. This notch is used as a wrench to tighten down the jag on the cleaning rod. Would you mind sending me a picture of that as well?

Great job. I thought I knew all the uses and you blew my mind with more.

You can also use the bolt carrier's rails to pry up the gas tube latch.

You can, but that is an excessively long lever. In the event something is bound up, that is more than enough leverage to break the retainer. Using the cleaning kit pod minimizes that risk.

Never even thought of 5, 16, & 21.
This has been done in a few magazines Guns & Ammo etc, But they only show 10-12 things you can do.
*Stick this thread up for sure*
Cant you open a beer bottle top too?

I've used 5 and 16 numerous times. I have bigrog210 to thank for 21.

The beer bottle thing is done with a mag, not the cleaning kit. That said, It is possible that the pod body could work as a bottle opener. I'm going to have to look into that.

Very good stuff!

There are a couple new ones to me in there. They use the pod body as a bottle opener exactly as i had imagined, i just don't have any beer around to take the picture myself.

I just added a few more uses in post 3. These primarily pertain to AKs with 4.5mm or 5.5mm side folding stocks.

It's interesting that in their article they show a twist off cap to demonstrate that you can use the cleaning kit to pop the top of your favorite beer. What's more interesting is that it does not work on a pry off cap...


But I aim to please, so I tried the table top method on the front sight post.


It worked!
