English term or phrase: drift try
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 "drift try".
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: Logical enough — but Asker claims this is a 'part'?! Note that a 'drift' can also be a noun for a certain kind of tool — so it could be 'a try using a drift'; but it may also be 'something required for performing an...' 'essai de dérive'
