Does something like that actually exist??? (If it does, perhaps it's better I didn't know about it after all these years ...)

I'm not too sure that those kinds of pictures are legal and/or appropriate.

It is obviously a pre-ban folding stock for an Eludium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator.

It is a grivelfletk, but you thought you could fool us by bending the reverstat and leaving out the klimmel pin.

Valve spring compressor for a '76 Pinto?

Around here we'd call that a "Thingamajig". In West Texas it would be a "Chingaderra". Both terms are closely related to "Whatcamacallit"

A hanger for a cavalry carbine.

Might be right. It is a hanger, but I can't even guess what for.

My Uncle Walt used to have one of those that he used to clean out his ears.

Long time lurker, 1st time poster. Just a guess, but isn't it a truck's rifle rack with space for 2? Looks like they would be pointing in opposite directions (if that makes sense).

No clue who makes it but thats what it looks like to me.

Eh... I'm probably wrong.

Hello All.

Well, I know what it is, but I'm way too considerate of other people's feelings to be the one to spoil it for everyone. I don't know why, I'm just that kinda guy.

I'm not sure, but if you put one on a post-ban rifle the ATF will kick down your door and shoot your dog.

I'm getting the same impression too. It does look like a hanger of some sort but I'm betting that it's something that is designed to be worn on the person, like fastened to a utility belt. It is definitely something that you wear. It's a holster for something ...

(both pics show a small 'hook' at one end that looks like it might be inserted into a barrel muzzle)

I don't know,but I saw one on e-bay with a $1200.00
"buy it now".

My guess is the front and back half of a clip-on quick-release rack for an MP-5 that fits in one of those white-painted APC's that the U.N. uses.

Long live the Blue Helmets! :p ;)

A device used to hold rifles or shotguns while working on them?

A old device used for bore sighting?

This is a WW1 Pineapple Chucker. It was used by an infantryman to give the user the ability to throw a granade up to 200 yards.

The rubber straps are missing along with their retainer clips, and somebody has scrubbed off the rusty patina.

Were this in original condition and in it's original container, I think you could expect between $2000 and $2500 at auction.

Unfortunatly, in it's present condition, it's not worth the gas you burned driving it over here.

Thanks for comming to the Antiques Road Show.

The muzzle detention rod looked longer in the original picture than it is in the "revieled" [SIC] picture.
