    Interesting measure for sure. Notice it does have brass and steel. Looks like the pivot areas are brass on steel which would be anti spark which is good when using BP. But from the pictures it is hard to tell if that is true in all areas of the pivot.

    I believe the top and bottom of the pivot area are cast iron and the pivot mechanism itself is brass along with the brass hopper.

    Is the amount of "product" thrown adjustable? Could be for either powder or shot in my estimation. Never saw one like it, that's for sure!

    Yes, The measure has an adjustable bar that regulates how much powder is dropped.
