    Any idea what may have "donated" it to the floor? Which guns were you monkeying with?
    Are you sure it came from a gun?

    Certainly could be a gun part, but ya, need to narrow it down a bit.

    Maybe a tube magazine follower? Kinda looks like one. Might not notice it's missing with the gun assembled.

    Got any custom 1911s missing their Recoil Spring Plug? That's a popular "launch" item...
