I have been seaching for a thread that was titled some thing like "What do you keep in your Butt stock. And I can not find it. Any one know where it is? Or do I have to start my own thread?

I'm looking for a good cleaning kit to put in my A2. Any recommendations & who has one I can order? I'm already have extractor, firing pin & extra pins for the bolt in there.

mine stays empty, but I should find something to put in there. it needs to be full though I wouldn't want something to rattle inside.

I've got a Bore Snake, a small bottle of CLP, and a complete bolt in mine. I need to add a spare battery for the Aimpoint.

Same here. One set of spares of all the small parts that could get lost during a field cleaning.

I switch back and forth between a full cleaning kit, and just a small bottle of CLP and as many patches (both bore and .30 cal size) as I can. The clean kit does affect the balance somewhat, and there are times when I like to keep it on the LBE. But it's been awhile since I ran around the woods in full gear, with blanks/blank adaptor on the rifle too.
