    If you look at the top there is a hole where a pin is inserted/pulled. Also notice the 2 slits in the object.

    I am going to join the ferrule part of a tent pole idea, it does not look like anything ord related that i have seen before.

    Hi mate. Did you find it in Germany or near where you live? Is the white end in the 3rd picture smoke & powder residue and does it have that burnt/fired/used 'smell'?

    It does ring a bell as having something to do with a K98 like the bullet trap for the rifle grenade - the Gewehrgranatengerät but I'm not too sure.

    Hi Fritz,

    No it was found at an ex Polish Parachute Brigade site. I have restarted this thread because i would like to bring it to the attention of Steve T i notice he has not seen it.
