    Possibly a piece of a broken musket trigger guard.

ID:	1536424Matt, Thanks I think you may be correct. Only thing I noticed though, when comparing it to broken Enfield gaurd I had, there's a section on the mystery piece that's like 5 mm thick,an kinda rounded, an can't find a part that thick on the gaurd( at least the part an type I've got)
    If I don't have time to do it right, how do I have time to do it twice?

    Good eye Matt.
    Due to the high price of ammunition there will be no warning shot.
