Sidelocks are either bar locks or back-action locks. With the bar lock the projection on the front of the lock plate is set into the action bar with the mainspring located behind it, while the side panel of the stock is cut away to accept the rest of the lockwork. With a back-action lock the lock mechanism and the mainspring are contained within the cut-out in the stock. It is not always obvious that a gun is a back-action lock as some are the shape of a bar lock. These are of varying complexity but the usual identifying factor is that they do not show the end of a mainspring peg through the extension on the lock plate that lies in the bar and are back action bar locks.
However, I have taken one small liberty in this book as an aid to clarity. Screws are usually referred to as pins but they vary in type, so I have described those having a full length of thread as screw pins, the type that have a parallel section and a threaded end as pins, and plain pins without head or thread as dowel pins. The location of these pins is also reflected in the description, as in hand pin or bridle pin. Those wood thread types (actually a tapered Whitworth thread) holding the tang to the stock are usually described as tang screws, a term that I have chosen to retain, although some in the trade would refer to these as pins.
Further back is the hand, where the stock is held, and the grip, that is, the chequering. Occasionally, the hand is described as the wrist! Back from the hand is the raised comb, along the side of the comb is the face, and at the end of the comb is the bump or heel. The shoulder end of the stock is the butt, the position at the middle of the butt is the middle, and the bottom end is the toe. The butt may be made of plain wood or fitted with a heel plate, butt plate or butt pad. The term heel plate has been used to describe both a butt plate made of steel or horn (or other material) or a butt pad.
