I hit the local flea market this morning and bought a deceased guys gun tool box. There's an assortment of stuff but Most of the stuff in there sorta suggests to me that he was a .22 pistol shooter.
One thing in there has me stumped. It's a 2 1/2 inches long, aluminum, and the center piece moves on the shaft.
Pics follow.
Thanks!

Maybe it is something else that just got dropped in the gun box. The National Rifle Association being a service organization rather than a manufacturer or producer of goods would seem to eliminate it as a holder of the patent.

Could it be a scoring plug for checking to see if a bullet hole in the target is a single or a double?
It looks like the end plugs are maybe 22, 38 and 45 caliber?
Gil Hebard and several others made plugs in individual calibers in which you can see if the shot

touched or broke the line for next up scoring ring. Or if it's a double shot whole. These were used in Bullseye competition.

Dang! I was fixin' to say it was a rod ejector for revolvers with no attached ejector rod!
