Cosmoline, on that pics it is not a Bramit device.
In fact, "Bramit" (Bratya Mitiny - Mitin brothers) was a more ol less conventional multi-baffle silencer; the one that is on your pic is an early attempt to make a "sealed" silenced gun; the cylinder on the muzzle rotated on the same axis as the main cyliner; it was used to capture sabots that launched .22 caliber bullets; upon discharge, sabots jammed in the front cylinder, not permitting the fast escape of the powder gases into atmosphere.
the same idea (although sabots were jammed in the mouth of the case) was applied later to the US "Tunnel guns" and Russian "internally silenced ammo"
