Yesterday, a friend gave this puzzle:



https://flic.kr/p/242sjUD

It was already scrambled when he gave it to me.

Now, I want to solve it but I can't find a tutorial since I don't know what's this puzzle called. I have been searching for a day now but I can't find a puzzle similar to this. Sadly, my friend also didn't know what this is called.

So, do anyone of you knows what it is? Any help is appreciated.
When i saw the picture i thought that it looks like a mixture of a Dino cube and a skewb.
So i typed "Dino skewb" into Google and that's actually exactly what it is : a dayan dino skewb

Today I bought a Dayan 2x2 off a kid who thought it was an old plastic Dayan 2x2 that had the screws replaced with the newer silver screws. I don't have another one to compare it to. How can I tell if it's a new plastic or old plastic just by looking at it, but without taking the screws into consideration?

My grandpa bought this cube off ebay. He said it was MoYu and it was cheap. I'm assuming its a MF 3?
Most likely yes. Looks like a budget cube, no square corners, cheap price tag.
Next time, try focusing your camera on the pieces, that should make the things that you want us to see clearer. It's out of focus on this one...

Does anyone know a 4x4 that uses a 3x3 mechanism on the inside and has 2 center stalks and rings instead of 1 on each side? It resembles the aosu but the corner base was flattened a bit and I'm not sure about the center mechanism. I noticed that the corner is also hollow (it resembles a valk 3).

It would help if we had pictures.
