Pics are a little blurry but I think that's the muzzle attachment for launching a small thermo nuclear device. It does not look like it has the batfe approved demill for a WMD. Or maybe it's something else, hard to say.

Used rubber from Superman's ice cave?
He is known as the man of steel.

Back your camera off a little, focus, and also put something down beside it like a ruler or coin so we can know the general size.

Oh, that's the influx capacitor cap. It goes into the stock recess of a 40 watt plasma rifle. I haven't seen one in years!

Naw, it looks to be part of the autodrive system for a Herkimer Battle Jitney or its cousin the Zephyr Z17 Marauder. Hard to tell since they used many of the same parts.

It's the inside of a duck call modulator.

Blow into the large end and record the sound that it creates.
