Whatzit for the Forum, Some Sort of Initiator for CAD?


Had a good day at a local show this Saturday, picked up some nice items, and a Whatzit…

My first thought on seeing them was propelling charge for 81mm Mortar, but seemed a bit stubby…a friend much more knowledgeable than me thought it is an initiator for some sort of Cartridge Actuated Device, but for what? Anyone have any ideas?

Size is about 1 1/8" in length, rim size is same as a 12 gauge…I did briefly think it might be fun to throw it in the Mossberg and see how loud the boom was, but thought better!
