What is it

It has been a while since I have posted a what is it. I was up in the container cleaning up and looking for parts for a project I was working on this last weekend and came across this. It is a casting of some kind of mount. Some machining has been performed but it is far from complete. I am trying to determine the weapon that it goes to. Any help would be appreciated.





I picked this up years ago when I bought and imported a large quantity of parts out of England.

  • Not sure what it is from but I heard the front slot is for armor applique on the front of the tripod. …I carried one once… heavy as hell.

    Then there is the idea of designing the patterns to cast a new yolk assembly based upon the Hotchkiss 1914 machine gun and the French 1907 St Etienne.

      It could be for a French machine gun. In the same pile of misc treasures there was a unique 1907 St. Etienne tripod. Thanks for the input I will look at my reference library to see if it fits there.
