Default Help IDing an ejector rod knob

This has been sitting on my desk for years now and I have no idea if it goes to a Colt or S&W revolver. Can anyone ID it for me? Thanks in advance.

Not Colt because they never used a front cylinder lock, and that piece is drilled through to accommodate one.

Most likely S&W.

...or Taurus, or Rossi.
All 3 makers had some very similar designs.

Could it be for a older S&W hand ejector like the Triple Lock? I should have mentioned that it has no threads inside.

Good question. It was in with a bunch of S&W parts that came with a small gun collection.

Not TL, it had a barrel shaped knob with male threads.

I don't know of any S&W separate knobs that didn't have threads.

Top is an 1896 32 I frame knob, lower is a 38 K frame M&P knob:

Looks to me like a S&W pre-war HE part.

Looks "like" a lot of things but did you read the thread? See post #7.

It reminds me of a drill guide bushing as used in Forster's Universal Sight Mounting Fixture. However the bushings for the Forster sight fixture look larger than the one posted in the original photo.

While it resembles the first style 1903 or 1905 Model knob, the knurling looks different and the length is wrong. The two-piece rod and knob style didn't have the smooth shank. I doubt it's S&W. What are the inside threads? It 'could' be an unfinished factory s&w part, but it won't work on any finished gun.

I'd guess a small 'pull' for a small sliding door on an inexpensive metal appliance, display cabinet or something similar.

No threads, looks finished and the smooth end looks like a bit of taper to it.
Maybe attached with a simple pop-rivit or metal screw fastener seated down in the countersink.

It does look revolverish though..!

From the burr around the whole in the second picture, it was probably cut off a S&W ejector rod.

The OP says it's not threaded in his #4 post.

Except there are no S&W shaped knobs like it, either separate or integral with the rod.

S&W mushroom knobs:

I don't think it is a gun part, and especially not S&W.

The knurling is raised and pretty coarse; just doesn't look right.
