    I was looking for some gun parts at a sale. Noticed "The Thing" laying on a table. Seller said many folks had looked but none identified this cast aluminum Thing. Being familiar with the vast knowledge of viewers on trapshooter.com I'm hoping to someone can tell me the name of the subject item and where it is used? Small end appears to fit into something and large end locks onto (over) an outlet? Bill2

    one possibility is that it's part of the acoustic horn on an old time phonograph.

    Thanks Avery,
    The Thing does have a little black residue inside which could be from crack, sewage, or soap? I guess they would all leave some kind of trace. Keep'em coming. Bill2

    That's the Mahooka you smoke so you want to vote for the person who just ran up $5-Trillion of debt and doubled the foodstamp rolls.
