I have sorted this out for you.
Many thanks Douglas.... Not sure what thats all about.
There ya go!
You beat me to it Doug
For what its worth, my guess is it could belong to a harpoon gun. Harpoon guns often have brass hollow stocks, and I think the fixings on this one suggest it belongs to something very heavy duty. Just my thoughts. Doug
Wow, thanks Doug, that looks the best bet.
How bizarre..... It wouldn't have even occurred to me.
