    I don't think it's a gun. The first pic looks indeed like a gun barrel complete with front sight. The second pic shows what looks like the tangs of a lever action rifle. The problem is there is no receiver between the barrel and the tangs. No mechanism, no bolt. I don't think it's a bike fork either. It looks like the tangs were attached to a piece of wood like a handle. Interesting item. Gary

    How long is it? The "fork" sort of looks like a wagon tongue design, not so much the rest of it. Another guess would be a handle for a floor jack type mechanism.

    It looks like the metal end of an old pumpjack rod. The fork end was bolted to a wooden rod. Used on windmills, pumps etc. In the oil fields they were called sucker rods.
