Bonjour,

Je traduis un manuel d'arme à feu, et je recherche le nom d'une pièce.
Un peu plus de contexte:

The seal being caused by the outward force of the expanding gases forcing the neck of the case against the step reduces the amount of gases leaking rearward into the pistol’s frame and helps to reduce the amount of firing residue inside the frame.

Auriez-vous une idée du nom de cette pièce?

Merci et bonne journée!
