Finish Gun or ammo can mount

I received this with some collectable ammo I bought locally. Owner is deceased. Looked online for a Finish armaments’ forum, and could not find one, so I figured ask my compadres here, as they seem to figure out everything. Especially Fede…

Seems like it would screw into a tree?

Maybe a portable field charging port for M-N chargers?

??.

MN Stripper wont fit, as it is a bit to wide. 7.62x54R slides down and out, but loose.

How about Mauser?

No, that does not fit either.

Are you sure it is ammunition related? I’ve seen similar things screwed down to wooden beds for removable lugs to be clipped into to create a tie-down point for fastening items.

SA? A military bed? Maybe…

This is the more modern version of what I thought it may be. These also come in long lengths, as well as smaller ones.

Very different design but similar concept. An eye-bold with a T-nut would slide into the channel.

Wooden bed as in the bed (floor of loading space) in a truck I would presume.

Well I asked via email a forum member, that asked two Finn military collectors.

They both say it is from the Finnish army.
It is a part to screw in a tree they used to put an antenna on for radio transmission.

Mystery solved finally.

Thanks to all for trying to help me.

Hello,

this part belongs to the Finnish Maxim belt loading machine equipement.
It is used to unload the belt.

JFL,

Maybe you can answer this one also.

A tree climbing thingy?

Hello,

this is the cleaning stick for the chamber of Finnish Maxim barrel.

Cheers,

Thank you!

Reminds me of some veterinarian tool to crank up dogs. :-D

Alex,

I do not even what to visualize that…

Where do you insert it again?..

Joe

Joe, I think you need to use your finger and poke a bit and see where it fits…

Like the opposite end from where the bark comes from?
