    We need some idea of it's size. I have a pellet sizer that is similar. It sizes pellets to a certain size and ensures they are round. All but the most expensive pellets are packaged in a tin where damage occurs to their skirts.

    I believe it is a tool designed to tighten up the primer pockets on cartridge cases or shotgun shells.

    Looks like a barrel from a kit gun I have but mine does not have that firing pin thing, it is a (match) gun. It that thing rifled or smooth bore?

    The mounting bracket with a radiused edge and a hole for a pivot point should be a clue but it's not working for me.

    beat me to it. I think is is a fire starter. You put a piece of combustible stuff in and smack the rod on top of it and the pressure creates an ember.
    It may not be but here are pictures, judge for youself:

    Fire piston! has a hollow end for tinder and wouldn't have a mounting bracket.
    It has a round end like a push rod but?

    It is what it is !
    A fire starter would have a cylindrical plunger ... not a narrow end.
