I collected this old rifle cleaning kit at a flea market for $3. It has a nice wooden handle and a 5 piece brass rod, and it just had that nice aged patina that caught my eye. It came in a canvas pouch which was marked “Compliments of the Bridgeport Gun & Implement Company, Bridgeport Connecticut”. The BGI Company sold lots of sporting goods and reloading supplies as well as whistles and Echo Calls back in the day. I don’t think it is worth much, maybe 10-20 dollars but I like having something old and well made in my hand compared to the made in China crap sold today!

    Well for 3 bucks you cannot go wrong and it looks good and sturdy. I would pick one up like that whenever I see it.

      Yeah, it is a much better tool than what you can buy new today.
