    Good Day,
    I don't believe that is for a M14icon, the setup pictured is for the Hk91 and should work in the Germanicon military G3.
    Regards,

    Michael,
    I was also going to suggest the Germanicon G3 as I see a couple of German pieces in that box which makes that highly possible ie German Army chain pull through cleaning kit box and magazine lips!

    Yes, Germanicon G3. I don't remember there ever being a .22 kit for the M14icon.

    In the book "The Black Rifle" story about the M16 there are a few pages which show a TRW M14icon converted to use the 5,56mm M16 cartridge, the M16 magazine was also used.
    This was an attempt to salvage something from the cancelled M14 contract. There were a few examples produced.

    Jim,
    Yes like the H&K commonly known kit to do this
