It's a hand-operated tool. You can squeeze the handle repeatedly to further withdraw the inner plate. The metal "trigger" part releases the inner plate, and the plate will plunge forward with considerable force from a spring. There are no markings on the object to indicate a manufacturer. It's entirely metal except for the rubber grips. She doesn't know where it came from.
