The part number is B009-73-10579. It's the magazine tube for the Remington Model 11.

It's in the 1950s editions of the Ord 8 or Ord 9 for commercial shotguns. Not handy while at work but if you need the exact title and date I'll post it tonight. I'd forgotten until I looked last night that the wartime editions of the shotgun parts SNLs do not use the normal parts numbering system of the period. They instead used a company prefix (like Rem for Remington) and a number for the part.

Oops, not as late as I remembered, actually from 1948. Here is the cover and appropriate page.

While we're on the subject, here is the corresponding Ord 8 SNL B-9 from 1943. Note the simplified manufacturer part numbers are the only ones listed for identification and ordering purposes. The whole series of commercial shotguns pressed into service early in WWII, especially the various non-standard types of the Blanket Procurement Program, didn't fit well in the system of Ordnance Stock and Part numbers. It seems it took some time to work it all out.
