    The length definately looks good assuming the original filled the whole pocket. It almost looks like the pocket goes in, like it's not "full" about half or 3/4 of the way down. It could just be that picture, or the lighting or any number of variables. I still think you are on to something with the shotgun mic though.

    i don't think the "tool"/mic has the same diameter from top to bottom.

    That Sennheiser lead sounds REALLY promising... particular since there's a pic of Ben Burtt using one during filming.

    OK
    Here's my guess
    Altec-Lansing 681A omnidirectional microphone


    Dimensions are really good at 1 1/8 in. diameter at the top & 7 3/8 in. long.

    Notice it's flat across the top too.
    just remove the screen & unscreww the cord portion.

    I've been wondering if there was a connection since the start of this thread.

    since it's tapered, that could account for the "less fullness" at the bottom of the pocket...
