5TH one from the end, kind of a U-shaped one with a couple of holes in the lower corners look like a top plate for a 1919 bench mount, the one with an Aluminum Body

Number 9 is the stop plate for a MK58 Navy Machine Gun Mount gunnel pintel mount. It is used to limit the swing of the gun in the pintel so you do not shoot up your own boat.

These were sold to people as "bench" pintel mounts for working on you gun.

Example of complete unit for sale.

Number 7 is a breech face and number 20 is a firing pin. I don't know what gun they're for since there is nothing really for scale. Some of the smaller AT guns have a replaceable breech face on the breech block so that as primer leakage gas cuts the thing it can be replaced. As for the firing pin it doesn't look like any of the ones I've been dealing with but its definitely a firing pin.

Thanks Frank,
I am finding out that a lot of these parts are recoilless rifle parts. Have you ever seen anything like this part? Its approx 14 inches long and has approx 2 inch diameter.
Thanks again,
Jesse
