Does anyone recognize this cleaning kit and can you tell me what it is for?

I think its the "Putzzeug" for the Swiss Sturngewehr 57. The two cylindrical containers hold "Automatenfett" (grease).

Wow!!!  You certainly know your stuff.  Very impressive.  Do you know when it was in use?

Basically, it is still in use, because the Stgw 57 and its civilian semi-automatic PE  version are still around. About 1990, the Swiss started issuing the 5.6 mm (.223) Sturmgewehr 90 to new recruits.
