Next up it the P75 (P220) kit; here shown open:
By this point, they have moved on to vinyl or rubberized cloth. This one definitely appears to be vinyl.
Rear showing the belt loop:
They have also abandoned the old button and loop closure and switched to a snap. This one is marked "Lupress SWISS MADE":
I absolutely LOVE it when things are marked "Swiss Made". It's probably the number one reason I wear a Rolex.
My understanding is that only one grease can was originally supplied. Perhaps there is supposed to be a bundle of cloth in place of the second grease can? I don't know.
These grease cans are made of plastic, not steel. However, the bottom still bears the Waffenfabrik Bern mark:
Top of lid:
It looks like a miniature WWII German gasmask can.
One of the two grease containers has no brush although the cap is set up for one. I've never seen this before:
Notice that the automatenfett shows no evidence of a brush ever having been present. If one had been there, there would be a void in the middle of the sacred grease.
The other can has a brush as would be normal. Rather than show it in its glooped up state, I have substituted an emptied and cleaned cap and brush to show what these normally look like prior to the gloopage:
Here is the blued steel cleaning rod/brush cannister:
In this case, the end where the rod screws in look different than the P49 cannister:
The rods are interchangeable though.
Note that there is no manufacturer mark or date present.
Endcap removed showing contents:
All laid out:
From left, we have the end cap, grease brush, jag, scrubbing brush, second rod section (spins in the middle just like the P49 rod), first rod section (static like the P49), container/handle.
Here is a comparison of the
P49 (on the left) and P75 (on the right) cannisters:
All components will interchange between the two including, rod sections, brushes, jags and end caps. Functionally, they are identical.
Contraption assembled showing a P75 for size comparison:
That's it for tonight. In the next post, we'll continue with the rifle kits.
