    I bought a bin-full of stuff from someone that they identified as all gun-related. Most was, some was not. I was able to indentify 98% of it, but I am left with a few things. Of course, I have ideas on most, but I am looking for more specific information, hopefully.

    My best guess on the first tool is that it is simply to meausure the bores of shotguns? If I am correcty, any idea of brand or any other info?

    Second, we have a sling. I am guessing it is some sort of military sling. Any specifics?

    Third item, I really don't know. A small (approx 3") metal flask with two sides labeled W and H. I'm guessing some sort of powder flask, but I have no idea. Came to me in pouch shown above.

    Fourth item is a a miniature grim reaper sicle?? No, it is not sharp. Seems to be a tool specific for some purpose.

    Fifth is obviously a gun-cleaning kit. Not sure for what gun. Seems like I may have seen one somewhat similar to this with an SKS before?

    And, lastly, we have an ammo/magazine pouch of some sort. I just can't figure what would really fit into it. Seems too big for speed loaders and too small for any sort of magazine that I can think of.

    I know there are some people out there who have a LOT more experience than I do. ANY information would be appreciated. Value, vintage, manufacturer, guesses...???

    The sling, ammo pouch and cleaning kit look exactly like the stuff that came with the Russian SKS I bought back in 1995. It was one of them factory refurbished so everything came new in the box. No idea on the other stuff.

    i could be wrong but i think all of that is SKS stuff or some variant. Dont take my opinion as anything but :), i think the cleaning kit goes in the stock buttstock.

    Its close.

    Flask is oil/solvent...got a better pic of the writing? Thinking Yugo Mauser.

    Hook is a gas block wrench for something ( been googling trying to figure it out! )

    Sling and cleaning kit look bulgarian AK, pebble pouch is later Mosin.

    Your lower pic won't enlarge for me. I was jst going through an old box of stuff in my fathers basement and amongst the ancient ammo, bullet mold, stripper clips, there was a tube similar to the tube in your pic. Caps threaded to the inside on both ends, in one end is a string used for cleaning and the cap on the other end has a wire with a hooked end on it.

    Your dual compartment oil/solvent flask is of "late" Soviet manufacture.
