9 • Rod in three sections and a handle assembly.

10 • Patch holder section, swabs, patches, pipe cleaners, and rags.

13 to provide lubrication, and it prevents rust from forming. To use CLP:

14 • Always shake the bottle well before use.

16 • Clean your rifle with these patches and rags until they come out clean.
