You are missing part of it.

Did you recently purchase this on eBay?

Could it possibly be a convertible model?  Desk pen (though you're missing the taper) or regular pen.

I was told that: 

It Is a circa 1927 Wahl Equipoised in Green & Bronze.  The part at the bottom of the barrel unscrews to remove.  Two other "attachments" were made for the pen.  One is a desk pen taper, so the pen can be used as part of a desk set.  The other is a short pencil, so the pen has a nib at one end and a pencil at the other.

Oh how cool it would be to have the complete 3 piece set.  But, 1 out of 3 ain't so bad!

The pen is part of a pen/pencil combo. You are missing the pencil and pencil end cap.  Don't believe the part about a taper is correct.  The 'convertible' desk pen is smaller in diameter.

Yes, these came with multiple attachments, including a taper. Some sets also include a taper with female threads to turn the pencil end attachment into a desk pencil. 

 

There is also a smaller version which is too small to accommodate a pencil at the end of the barrel, which only has the options of an end plug and a taper.

Agree with Vintagepens.  David, as usual, has it right IMHO.  Additionally the pen was made between 1930 and 1933/4 ( not 1927).
