Hopefully my answer will stay unlike BAR's. That's the solonoid firing part (for lack of a better word) from one of the wing fixed firing guns. My ANM2 came with that and bunch of other odd parts too. It's there upside down with the cover off.
It is the trigger actuator for a British 303 ANM2 gun it mounts on the bottom plate. The Brit gun is an open bolt gun with a big sear in the lock frame to hold the bolt back. If I remmeber right the bolt sear is tripped by a sidepalte trigger or solinoid. Anyhow this gun was mounted in a simple craddle in which the trigger paddles contacted the 2 lugs on either side of the actuator
Thanks for the replies to the inquiry here. Good stuff, and some of us are always learning.
Note that all posts here have to be approved before they show up. B.A.R gunner, I think that will explain why you didn't see your initial post. I have deleted duplicates, as well as my own post about availability of such parts which was better left for PM or the for sale forums. Still going to Tech Forum Mod school here.
