    Um, is it part of the “Shoulder thingy that goes up?” *snicker*

  9. avatar Gossven says:

    If the water flowing underground thing is a clue and not a total red herring, some sort of spring?

    1. avatar Robert Farago says:

      It is a clue, yes.

  10. avatar bryan says:

      No it is not.

    1. avatar Robert Farago says:

      Possibly, but not really. No.

      1. avatar CUJO THE DOG OF WAR says:

        Damn!

  14. avatar Matthew H says:

    Looks like the inside part of a primer, the anvil if I remember correctly.

    1. avatar Robert Farago says:

      Not correct.

  15. avatar Javier E says:

    X-TAC front sight up-close and too personal.

    1. avatar Robert Farago says:

      X-TACly wrong.

      Wider than a mile. [NOTE: More clues tomorrow if no one gets it.]

  17. avatar PT says:

    it looks like a close up of a primer, but i guess that’s not it

    Front site post for AR variant

  19. avatar Javier E says:

    Last guess for me, some sort of security screw.

  20. avatar CraigD says:

    “You may find yourself living in a shotgun shack”
    I’m guessing part of a shotgun pump assembly.

  21. avatar Ed Allen says:

    Is it a tritium sight insert?

  22. avatar Eric says:

    Roller mechanism for a delayed blowback firearm.

    Definite WAG there….

  23. avatar Ed Allen says:

    Ooh, ooh–close up of a green fiber-optic sight tube?

  24. avatar Robert Farago says:

    No one’s got it yet. Talking Heads reference is correct.

    Remington Accutip Sabot Slug

    1. avatar Robert Farago says:

      WE HAVE A WINNER!

      I’ve added a pic of the ammo after the jump.

      Rich T: ping guntruth@me.com with your address.

    Me & a buddy are at work and we have been gearing up for deer season. In the Big Thicket preserve there is only shotgun or muzzleloader to hunt with for firearms. Lots of pigs there, so single shot is a bad choice. Last year he walked into a sounder of hogs at 4am w/ a muzzleloader. Said he almost crapped his pants.

    So we have been checking out slugs and when I missed it on the 1st try, he said slug looked like the picture.

  27. avatar IndyEric says:

    Assault Clip?

  28. avatar John Fritz says:

    Wow. Would not’ve guessed that in a million years.

  29. avatar CUJO THE DOG OF WAR says:

    Hmm, I wonder what it would be like if those holes were filled with tannerite?
