Well, don't know, to me it appears as a muzzle reference system, you know a thermal thingy that hooks on to the end of the barrel, when your barrel starts to droop from over heating , It allows you to compensate for the droop and remain on target. Could be wrong, I think I may have been wrong once or twice before.

Actually, I posted a picture of a gun that I thought would get some comment, but then found that I had posted on it before and didn't want to be reminded by some nitpicker that I was duplicating an old post. So I deleted it.

So Jim, you willfully spoiled a nitpicker's bit of fun?
How insensitive of you.

Yep - It'd be nice if this forum included a "delete post" under the "edit" feature, like many other forum do..............

Best deleted post ever. I am just replying to see how many posts we can get before it gets closed.

I still say it's a flux capacitor. It's been used, so it's no longer in this now, now.
