Okay,
So, getting ready for a Pistol shoot at the Jesse James Farm in Kearney Missouri.  As I am on the board, I thought I would bring several extra pistols incase a looker wants to be a doer.  Today, I am loading cappers and I find this oddity on my bench.   I have no idea what it is.   In the past 2 days, the bench has hosted (all pieta) a 1860 Colt Army, 1851 Colt Navy, Dance Brothers Revolver, 1858 Remington, and another 1858 Remington with a R&D cylinder.    Today, it hosted 10 inline cappers.   In the last month, it has also seen a Uberti Henry and a Cimarron 1878 Double Barrel Shotgun.    I have no recollection in my years of tweaking these guns of seeing anything like it.  I put a percussion cap (Remington No.11) in the photo for size perspective.  HELP!!!

Looks to me like a rear window out of a buckhorn sight.

I want to play !

here is my contribution .....

these two items were found and removed from behind the lock plate on a Uberti 1866 rifle...  Huh not mine

The action had jammed and upon disassembled, these fell out  Shocked   The Gun is a Taylors import date code 2013 and had a new loading gate installed after the OEM tab failed on it's first outing , stage 1 ,  5th-6th. round.

So the plate was off, the gun has run without issue the last two years, until it jammed (above )  Undecided
once they were out, the gun runs fine.

as with Mog's post,  the penny is for scale

Thanks!!  I did hand load some shotgun shells there.  Whew.  I did not want to share a gun tomorrow if it was missing a piece I had never seen before.  Obviously, I need to clean my bench a wee bit more often.  Thanks guys!

My Dear Mogorilla-

yes, I concurr ( as if consesus is required lol )  it is a shotgun primer anvil.

I have seen it's like amongst the used primers I save.

Being a cheap barstich frugal sort, I have been known to save "anything" wood or metal, especially if it was previously manufactured. I  am still saving a coffee can full of small carbon steel cutoffs :-)  , but I do draw the line at metal shaving and swarf
( owww! )  :-(

By taking junk apart and perusing it,  I found it interesting to discover that the apparrently "large" 209 shotgun is merely a
large cup holding a more "standard size" primer and this large anvil.

see here


why did I tear them apart? the dearth of .22 rimfire. I found this, using 209 primers to propell pellets


then I experimented and found a 209 primer will propell a well-lubed .22 bullet accurately out of an old .22 rifle barrel like a CB
and that a 209 will propell a well-lubed 150 gr lead bullet quietly out of a .30 rifle ( kinda a "blooper load" - I could see the bullet!)

You really need to take more crap apart!

Wow Professor. That is very cool. No, not the Scrooge Mcduck frugal sort thing. Roll Eyes

That thing you did with the pellets the cases and the primers.

PS. Got a 92 in .32 WCF? I see the makings of the ultimate gamer cartridge using the .31 ball. Grin

Mogo,
A cautionary note.  A Neat, Clean and Orderly Work Bench is the sign of a truly Sick Mind.  I have a 3 X 8 Work Bench.  I actually have about a square foot and a half to actually "work" in.

Rather than a "what is it?" thread, I could use a "where is it?" thread.  It could cover dropped parts that seem to hit the tip of my foot and vanish, springs that spring into the ether and maybe tools that were just here the other day. Many days, I could use it for my mind. What was I just saying? I don't recall.

I can relate to that.  Grin

There's a lot of odds and ends that theoretictally are still in my house. If I only knew where.  Roll Eyes

The last one was a tiny spring from my Colt Gold Cup. The dreaded sear depressor spring.
