I am not certain what this is.  Based on the tag, it appears to be some sort of army device for a weapons system.

 

Any Ideas on what this came off of?

 

It dates from about 1960- 64.  From the estate of a soldier who served in the US Army in Hawaii.

 

Any help is appreciated

I thought this would get a quick answer.

 

Any old arty guys out there?  I am still assuming it is a rocket/ missile arming device.

Reminds me of a hardpoint for connecting missile/bombs to the rails.

Thanks much appreciate the feedback.  Any specific weapons systems come to mind?

 

I thought this was going to go unanswered.

Since it says "Remove before firing" instead of "remove before flight" I think you're right in the assumption that it'd be a landbased weapon. I was thinking something like a little john, that slides up a launch rail, but I have little knowledge of weapons of that time period. https://www.flickr.com/photos/rocbolt/8063185258
