What is it?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me what this is? I bought it at Beltring purely because I liked the box and the quality of the steel. Now how sad is that.....

 

I think it is artillery based so Rob, are you there?

Looks a bit like a "go no-go" gauge for a part on the gun...

Try measuring the cutout on each to see if they are a thou or so different.

With the same NSN they should all be identical - that would just tell you the tolerance to which they were manufactured, no?

 

Nice looking things though :)

Think you're correct... the 5520 part of the NSN are

Thanks for that Lee. Whatever they are, its really high grade steel. I expect they will be used in the workshop for something even if only a small anvil.
