February 2022 issue.   I saw that as well, looks like the photo is cropped but would guess it is some type of sling swivel.  What is more perplexing is the loading gate on the left side of the receiver.

My guess is the photo is printed in reverse view.  Like the famous photo of “Billy the Kid”, where he appears to be left handed.  Is it possibly an experimental take down lever on a center fire rifle?  RDB

A common error demonstrating the ignorance of many editors.  For example, I’ve seen many WWI photos of troops lined up in a trench all holding left-handed bolt-actions!

I thought the same.  Looked to them better on the page that way.  Who knows.  

It seems like Ive seen that gun before, more specifically the attachment to the frame but cant place it.  With all that metal on the 76, its no wonder someone might add a sling swivel since the gun is so long and the weight distribution.  If you look at the Model 1868 musket pics in Herbert Houze book on the 76, there is an example shown with a sling swivel installed right behind the carrier (between carrier and lever).
