Can you identify this tool? I believe it is used on firearms. Answered

This tool came in a box of firearm items, however we have been unable to identify what it is or what it would be used for. The overall length is 2 7/8 inches, largest diameter is 3/4 inch, smaller diameter is 7/16 inch, has a 3/16 slot on one end and two 1/8 inch pins in the larger end, pins are 1/2 inch apart. There are two holes cross drilled in the smaller diameter, they are each 3/16 diameter and are 15/16 inch apart. The metal is blued same as a firearm would be. There are no identification markings on this tool.

Looks like a nipple wrench. The small end would be used to install/remove the primer nipple from a black powder firearm. The pins in the other end might fit into the breach plug of an inline black powder riffle and be used to romove/install it. The holes in the side are so that you can slide something through them (like a screwdriver) to act as leverage.
