    I have had the pleasure of handling this piece and it is very fragile and lightweight. It is hollow and cast (I believe) in two pieces. It would not have lasted very long as a training item. Surly if you were making bombs in number you would simply have put aside the standard bomb fins for using on a practice or training item rather than having a separate way of manufacture (spot welding).
    Always looking for projectiles, cases, fuzes and paperwork related to Burney and Davis guns.

    I'm sure your friend would not mind me posting more detailed pictures to aid identification.
