Bonjour,

Je traduis un manuel d'arme à feu, et je recherche le nom d'une pièce, sans trop d'informations ni contexte.
Le segment contient juste Step (Stepped Chamber).
Je n'ai rien trouvé dans la TM ni dans Termium.
Auriez-vous une idée du nom de cette pièce?

Merci et bonne journée!

agree  Tony M: Usual sense of 'step' — this is of course something quite different from a 'rifled barrel'. Completely confirmed now by explanation in Asker's later question.
