I had the occasion to buy 3 oiler. They are different to my other SI marked oiler. As it seems these are blued. As I learned, all oiler should been parkerized. I think one is Inland the other Winchester. But I don't know the "BK" oiler. Any help welcome.

BK is Blake Manufacturing Corp. They replacement oilers made during WWII. Early oilers are blued, later ones are parkerized. Yours appear to have been refinished.

Thank you BQ97. I will compare with my IS oiler. Think you're right with refinished.

Probably a dumb question, but what are the oilers for other than holding the sling in the butt of the carbine?

As the name suggest: The oiler contains the oil for lubricating the metal parts of the carbine.
