Légende d'un fusil Martini-Henry

Forestock continues almost to muzzle

Voici une image:

J'ai trouvé des références de "forestock = pontet", mais la définition de "pontet" ne semble pas convenir à l'image. La légende pointe le dessus du canon, alors que "pontet" est défini comme étant en dessous, au niveau de la détente. Idem pour "fût"
