I have no idea, I just wish I had a double gun stocked with that piece of walnut.

The part being screwed into appears to have a varied thickness.

Old colonel is right, it is an edge for finding the balance point on a gun.

Congratulations! to "Old Colonel" for the correct answer. The varied thickness of the top edge is to accommodate a variety of action shapes. Just thought it would be a cool addition to the gunroom.

I got the idea from a Holt's video showing an antique one made by Purdey's over a hundred years ago. It is made from California walnut.

Beautiful piece of wood and workmanship. Congratulations! But wouldn’t hanging it over your finger give you the same answer?

I thought it was the part you sit on in a set or stocks.
