The 'Robust' was a double-barreled shotgun made by MF (Manufacture française d'armes et cycles de Saint-Étienne), more details in French here and here

Probably attached to a jig used in the manufacture of this particular model of gun.

There are many types of jigs, and each one is custom-tailored to do a specific job. Many jigs are created because there is a necessity to do so by the tradesmen. Some are made to increase productivity through consistency, to do repetitive activities or to do a job more precisely. Jigs may be well made for frequent use or may be improvised from scrap for a single project, depending on the task. Wikipedia

And in Dutch, a jig is called "Mal" :).

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
