Just found my manual, good call sir!MSG90 Maintenance Instructions
Page 32, Item #8.
Description: Cleaning rod (pull-through)
Ident. No: 327894
Remarks: “Delivery with each weapon”
The remark in the final column makes me think each MSG90 did generally ship with one.
For filling out the case, if it fits, I think the sling is likely the best purpose for that cutout. The cleaning rod has a mind of its own. Unless coiled and put away safely it can get bent and take memory easily. A lot of them that were stored in PSG1 cases have bends. Even if the MSG90 likely came with one, it’s not an accessory I’d chase down unless you’re going for completeness.
I think I am going for completeness at this point.
I won't use most of the accessories for routine tasks, there are obviously better modern choices. I'd like to keep the accessories mint. As they are hard to find.
So, anybody have one of these rods? In very good or better condition?
