I do believe that's what it is.

It doesn't appear to have ever been fired. The rocked is unmarked.

Ah, REAL line throwing guns, not what is pictured. Had lots of experience with them in innumerable underway refuelings in the Navy.

M-14s could deliver the line from a significant distance. Replenishment ships always fired the line unless you were an aircraft or helo carrier then you fired it. Don

My LARGEST handgun would be this Remington XP-100, at approximately 17.5" long, or this 45/70 TC Contender at approximately 18" long.

No worries.

I am by no means a gun expert. I have never seen one until this past year.
