Another mystery object in with the brass..help again?

I have been working the Thumblers Tumbler with stainless media on brass for a few days. I am on ~ the 26th batch.

The guy died ~1996 and I was given a half dozen boxes of reloading gear in 2007.

This object was in with a bag of fired 223 brass mixed LC 93 and 95.

He did have a Dillion 550B that I gave away. It could have been part of that.

That is either a part for some mechanism I'm not familiar with, or more likely a special tool for something, possibly home made.

I had a Dillon 450, essentially the 550 before they made the removable tool head, and that's nothing I recognize, sorry.

Looks like a ak-47 tool. Comes in the little cleaning kit in the stock.

Definitely not a Dillon RL450 (or 450b) part. It looks like a combination tool for a specific firearm to me.

Thanks guys!
I have an AK, an SLR95 I got in 1995, shot it in 1995 and it has been in the safe ever since. I have a box of AK stuff, and I put a label on this part and put it in the box.
