Unfortunately, I no longer own the piece in question. But here are the specs:
- Dark metallic grey, like Super Battle Droids.
- Somewhere in the vicinity of 6 inches long.
- Flat ends: not a cut or broken pice of something else.
- Fits perfectly in a hole for basic minifig-grabbable bars.
- Not easily bent, but can kink slightly.
If this isn't a LEGO, say so, but bring some proof please.
