    Not sure what this is

    Hi folks...
    Hoping someone can help me identify this.

    My wife found this last night with my equinox at an old home site we have been hunting. Rang up a 20 on VDI at about 7 inches.
    Any ideas?

    Thanks Toecutter...
    I was thinking something similar because of the rounded part but I was thinking more along the lines of a handgun and it wasn't making sense to me that a handgun would have that much angle where it rounds off. However, I was not even thinking about an old rifle!! This makes more sense...

    Hopefully one of the experts will chime in and tell us what rifle it was used on...

    That would be awesome if someone could identify and date it.
    I did some more looking and that is definitely what it is (off a rifle or shotgun). Wife is pretty stoked now that we know what it is...

    I'm beginning to realize I've gone through life without knowing what anything is ...

    Thanks Tommy...
    Have not looked that close yet but I have a marker in the field on where we found it. Most of the large signals we end pulling heavy iron scrap so I am a little pessimistic.
