Saw an odd attachment to a M14 dovetail. Looked like it was a military finish, can anyone tell me what it is?

Looks like part of the the Springfield scope mount - without the mount itself.

Yup, it's the stripper clip attachment and thumbnut without the actual Gen 4 Springfield scope mount - pretty much a piece of junk and someone left the useless parts on the rifle. They serve no purpose without the scope mount and should be removed and tossed in the junk pile.

Looks a little funky to say the least. Clip guide pin is raised so perhaps someone made a boo boo trying to put it together.

Thanks all. I'm an old Navy guy and thought I was familiar with most accessories. I even have used the line launcher attachment, but that threw me.
