Can anyone identify these?



Not sure what they are or what they go to. Got them at a gunshow for $5 a piece. One has a sleeved barrel chambered for what looks like 9mm? The other has a huge bore because there's no sleeve in it.

I'm assuming they are someone's project pieces left unfinished. They have feed ramps but flat breechface, as if they don't attach to any specific trunnion or receiver.

Well they're getting fabricated into an old hotrod pickup hood or fender if they aren't anything special. Just wanted to see if anyone knows if they're anything or not.

Looks like they'd make good fire poker sticks.

I'm a car guy, sounds cool to me.

Looks like pistol caliber barrels for a carbine. Possibly pulled for "evil features" in some state like NJ or CA, or because the barrels are too short under NFA rules. Flat breech face indicates something with a simple blowback mechanism, so I don't see how the thing was mounted into a receiver.

Looks like T14 barrels... Barrels for .410 upper for the AR15. Think they were discontenued.
