Toolman and I found this little beauty at a vendor, and have dibs on it if we can figure out that it is useful for something. We don't know for sure, but the vendor thinks it is for something Browning. If anyone recognizes this, or has any references they can pursue, all help would be appreciated. We do have a drawing number, clearly visible in the photos.

I have two tools with the same part number but instead of having a spring loaded lever it has a closes by turning the handle. Once we know what your is, I will know what mine are. Both have the ordnance bomb symbol on the back.

Did you find yours in Key West too? Or was it in West Hollywood?

You know, it looks like we have a game of "you show me yours and I'll show you mine" going on. Anybody else want to show off their tool here? :lol::rofl:

THe B becomes a 6
The part number for this tool is 6163500 NSN 4933-00-616-3500 There is not much info but what I can come up with is it is a tool for assembling a seal. One of the original suppliers was Watervliet Arsenal.
Hope that helps a little

Thanks, Dave. Every little bit of info helps!

And then there is GSG. It must be that M13 tool roll, for compressing the seams before stitching... :rolleyes:
