Otis cleaning kit for AK's?
I recently acquired an Otis cleaning kit.
This kit is pretty complete, in that it is for the US issue 5.56 M4 as well as the 7.62 sniper rifle. It has the brushes, jags, etc. for both calibers.
This got me thinking:
Can I use this kit for my AK's as well? I have a .223/5.56 SAM 5, a Bulgy AK74, and a 47 in 7.62.
If I would need to change out or add parts to the kit to make it AK useable, what parts would they be?
Generally, cleaning kits are caliber-specific, not gun-specific. The exception to this is a tool for a particular gun (i.e., an AR chamber brush). If the kit will clean a 7.62x51 rifle, it should clean a 7.62x39 rifle. I use the same rods, brushes, Bore Snake, and jags on my M1 as I do on my AK.
If you shoot corrosive ammo, be sure to have the supplies for that. I doubt a modern "American" kit would have additional bottles for water.
