British Vickers MMG Clearing Plug: Forged Handle
Original Item: The Vickers Medium Machine Gun was issued with a tool designed to remove broken cartridge cases from the chamber of the barrel. Three different events can result in a fired case remaining in the chamber: (1) The extractor, whose function is to pull the case out, breaks; (2) The extractor pulls through the rim of the case, tearing away the metal of the case; (3) The head of the cartridge separates from the body of the case. In this last event, the head is extracted and is either ejected or falls down in the gun mechanism, but the body of the case remains in the chamber.
The tool is marked
