Thanks Rob

 

That’s a match.  It’s an OSP – spec to 22 GHz. https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/coaxial-connectors/7130997/

Looks like a push fit connector for modular system, like OSP...

Thanks for all the comments so far.

 

It’s definitely not SMB, SMC or RP-SMA.  It could be a variant of QMA, but it has a male centre pin, the insulation is too well recessed and the external ridges are outside the formal spec.

 

It could have been used as a test point on a piece of equipment, so may not even be a standardised connector at all.  Anyway, the leads are useful as they have SMBs at the other end....

 

Close-up attached with a view of the recessed insulation and the stepped diameter male centre pin.
