    Yes, I also saw the squad kits, but don't ever recall while on active duty seeing a new in the wrap sealed parts kit like Johnny shows here. Saw plenty of loose parts, but not in the old, original packaging.

    Haven't seen even a squad kit for sale in quite some time but I buy them if reasonable.
    Have a couple.
    One came with a parts kit but it had been opened. Took some time to unwrap and clean the parts.20191205_144811_1575575422354.jpg20191205_144729_1575575400148.jpg

    A hard variation to find with the rods. This one dates to the late 1930's, and while it still has the removable wood and metal rod racks of the earlier kits, the holders are steel rather than brass. Each part of the kit; the wood block, rod holders, and top and bottom of the case all have Drawing Numbers. The unfinished steel rods are marked U.H.CO. at the top of the loop. The box is marked CLIMAX on the bottom.

    A Bill Ricca box, in the original wrap. This is a late box with the welded rod holders.

    In my years of going to gun shows I never found enough WWII cleaning rods by the same manufacturer to make a complete cleaning kit.

    I inducted in 66, got out in 74. You're right, it probably predates me too. I never saw a parts, "kit" I figured the armorers got stuff in they knew they would be needing eventually.
