This is a nice Australian 20x110 Hispano Drill/Inspection Mk3.
Made by Maribyrnong Ordnance 1953. Should be plated steel.
My example is made by RML in the UK 1952.
Used in Spitfires and other planes possibly by armourers to check cannon operations.

Ron, do you know who is RML?

RML is Royal Ordnance Factory Maltby, South Yorkshire. UK.
I enclose an article I did for the ACCA Journal in Australia. No 145 in 2016.
I also have a Bofors primer made by RML since this article was published.
