    Good morning everybody. Like many of you, I got one of those metal Russian two-compartment oil bottles with a Mosin rifle. I figured to use one half for Hoppe's and the other for gun oil. The front is embossed with two Cyrillic characters, I'm guessing they indicate which substance goes in which half. One looks like the letter W and the other looks like an H. Although it doesn't really matter much, I'd like to know what these two characters mean. Anybody know? Thanks in advance!

    Depends on what model you received.

    All you could ever want and more:

    however yours *probably* is the Y shaped one, in which case the characters mean "shchalok" and "neft", which is solvent/oil respectively

    Holy Cow! I never would have guessed there were that many types. Thanks very much for the help. Didn't have to look far - mine is the one on top right.
