I think it is a Winchester low wall Winder musket fore-end that was shortened


these were 22 rim fire

I had to use the coil spring hammer from a Winchester Winder Musket action in a very heavy bench rest Hi Wall as my barrel was too large in diameter for the flat spring

Interesting that the early Winchester coil spring hammer is like the AR-15 and AK47 hammer springs

1885 Winchester Low Wall rifle. Likely a Winder musket.
