    Can anyone identify this Bomb Pistol?

    Hello,

    Someone came and donated this to the Warplane heritage Museum in hamilton ontario (www.warplane.com). Can anyone confirm the identity of this peice? I am interested in this peice because i was an armourer in the RCAF stationed on a bomber station in yorkshire from 1944-45. I think it is a nose pistol out of a large bomb.

    Thank you,

    Looks to be a US-supplied AN-M100/101/102 series or M115/116/117 series tail fuze.

    All the best,

    Sir;
    It is really not called a pistol at all but the arming vane assembly for the U.S. bomb tail fuzes mention above in the previous post.
    Regards,
    John

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StdhRQ7x_Ns video showing Testing of AN-M100 Tail fuse. This looks very similair to what is in our possession. Does anyone know an approx. Time period these were used in?

    Thanks for the information, No one is an expert on bomb components so we're trying to narrow it down the best we can.
