That's mine; lost it last year and figured I'd never see it again.  You can send it right on back.  :hey-hey

No Hanshi, no, that's not yours.
That fell outta my belt a few years back when I was huntin down that way.

Just to prove it to ya I'll describe it for ya.....It's about 5.6" long on outer curve, butt is 1.6" in dia. , 4 tiny metal pins securing the BP. and, the spout hole is tapered.

Now that should tell Ya sumpin! :lol sign

But that's okay ridjrunr, you hang on to it awhile, play around with it bit, THEN you can send back to me....Okay?
