No. The object is solid. Nothing can pass through it and it's not used to pump anything up.

No. Not a locating pin.

Time for a hint:
Both of the brass pieces are used to push something

I know, but I can't answer. I am a bad "it", and have banned myself.

Just wanted to tip my cap to your percussion quip.

I know this can't be it because I cannot find any pictures that support it, but does it have anything to do with guns (ie., percussion caps, etc.).

Percussion is stuck in my brain and it won't let go! I could only think of ear drums and percussion caps after the last clues, but I certainly wouldn't want anyone to push that into my ear!
