This might answer your question. I think the source was GunsAmerica site where I read that the Marines are changing back to the Vietnam era cleaning system "screw together rods and brush and patches." They had been using the gun bore "Snake." Men in combat said the snake was not working, did NOT clean good enough.
Plus the rod cleaning kits cost about $20.00 per unit as opposed to almost $100 per unit for the Snake kit.
