This website is dedicated exclusively to providing and collecting information about the cleaning kits used by the Germans in the Second World War from the point of view of a simple collector.

This blog has no sympathy or support to the Nazi regime that devastated Europe on the 40's. Also personally, when I see one of these kits manufactured on the war years, I think of the possibility that maybe it was made by a foreign forced worker under harsh conditions.

Links of interest

Here some interesting links relating with the Reinigungsgerät 34:


  1. can you post something on procedures used with the RG34 to clean a weapon.

  2. I would recommend John Baum's English translation of the original 1936 manual. If you decide to use an original Rg34 to clean your rifle, use only if the chain and brushes are in good condition and no more than 15-16 wicks with the chain inside the barrel.

  3. Excellent site, thanks for the information.
