Picked this up in the gravel at a recent shoot. Appears to be some sort of military multi tool. The center boss pivots 360 degrees and is treaded. I assume that is for a cleaning rod. The slot in the right end has a recess that spans about 120 degrees. Perhaps a pin limits the range of the feature being turned by the slot? Anyhow, what is this things function?

Never seen one, BUT itlooks like the slot in the back could hold a lever so it can be used as a screwdriver.

cleaning rod handle/disassembly tool if I was guessing

bigdb1, combo tool for M-14 screw driver blade on one end, the hole on other end, round, is to slide a rod section through for a T handle. The same end usually has a flat steel part in the slot there. That end also can be used to take your bolt apart. Center hole is to attach the rod, swivels so it woun't loosen. There was one for late model M-1 rifles too looked similar. Jim

It's an M10 combo tool for the M1 Garand, The missing piece is for disassembling the bolt. Not a rare item but it can be real handy if you have an M1.

I knew I'd get the answer here. Thanks to all! Maybe I can convince Her Majesty I need a rifle to use it on... "But baby, it'd be a shame to let it go to waste."[[:P]
