...booby trap gun...?
 
Maybe a WWI version of a mechanical fired directional mine. Corrosion and construction seems to point to that time or earlier.
 
Definitely looks WW1 period, and the trigger looks like a French detail.
Mine, grenade, lantern/ flare/ signal gizmo.

What has been seen cannot be unseen.

A secret hint from the Armorer. I still have no idea what it is, my conjecture that it might be a waffle iron was greeted by hoots of derision from the all knowing one.
 
A WWI era spring driven entrenching tool, in very poor condition. 
 
I don't know what it is, but I have seen it here before. It has been a past whatsis or possibly just a fiddly bits post, but I cannot find it so I assume the old post has been purged either forever or until we figure this out.
