Ugh, I can't remember for exactly which weapon it is atm, I think it might be for the Suomi? It's an oil bottle.
Looking for militaria from 38. Batterie, Heeres Küsten Artillerie Regiment 977, also from 31, 32 and 36. Batterie.
It is a Model 1940 Swedish Lahti Pistol Oiler

Bill, well spotted. I found it right now and added it/edited it, but you beat me to it.
Hi Bill, Scout and Vegar, Thank you for taking the time to let me know your thaoughts. It is greatly appreciated and makes sense as it came with what I beleive to be a Swedish pistol holster and some German bits.
With thanks, regards and best wishes Michael R
Like many 'oilers' from cold countries, the thing has 2 compartments or tubes for a cleaning solution and a lubricating medium-the British equivalent is just a tube for machine oil that's a fairly thin liquid for both jobs.
Thank you Lithgow, I realy do appreciate people taking time out to educate me!!!
Regards and best wishes MR
Cheers again Scout!!! MR
