I've just repaired this today - anyone hazard a guess what it is? (Shooting related)

One of the little ears was broken off:

Turned down a bit of silver steel:

Milled the slot 3mm x3mm.

Hardened, tempered and oil blacked - good as new.

It wouldn't happen to be a front sight release tool for a Lee Enfield?

That was too easy for you guys. :) Yes, No 32 Scope tool. ... Just need three hands to use the thing.

Like so many things.... I was using a hydraulic bearing puller yesterday and had the same thought!

I agree, another typical example. Specific pullers designed for a job are usually not too bad but generic pullers are often a nightmare. I've often thought strong magnets on the legs might help to hold them in position while you get them lined up.

I have an original and a reproduction, neither of which I use. Instead I have a piece of 1/4" Steel bent to 90 degrees with a slot cut in one end which works perfectly and only require two hands.

small strap round the legs, the type with the sprung thumb lever. lets jou get the legs nice and tight while you do up. magnet is a good idea until it's non ferrous
