Found this interesting piece the other day, and it looks very similar to the hinging mechanism on a break barrel mid 19th century Smith and Wesson revolver. Its not exact, but so similar that I have almost convinced myself it is from a revolver.

I have attached a picture of my find as well as a photo of Civil War era Smith and Wesson revolver. If anyone has any better ideas please let me know.

interesting find.
it does appear to have a very similar shape to the break barrel revolver piece.
possibly off another model or style gun. 
with a little luck, maybe the rest off the gun will pop out a hole for you ...
i love the mystery pieces. keeps the hobby interesting ...
