Ditto.

What is the little button on the end of the rib at the muzzle?

Iver Johnson Special Trap.
Unfortunately the wrist has a major crack making a repair and refinishing necessary:

Grenadier, the little button, when compressed, allows one to slide the rib forward and off of the gun, leaving the posts in place. I am not sure of the reason for this, although there is a patent for it by Flues. I once speculated that one could have higher or lower ribs put on the gun, but that is only my dreaming.

Daryl and my new friend, Mr. Grenadier, early designers of ventilated ribs, as well as users of vent ribs for more than 100 years, have worried about rust and accumulation of crap under the vent rib that is much more easily taken care of if the rib can be easily removed. Emil Flues is the only inventor who made such a process user friendly. How I wish that the underside of all of my vent ribs wasn't "brown". The only solution I have arrived at is to keep the area wet with oil.

Unless you are using a dental mirror, how do you know the undersides of your ribs are brown?

Eightbore, interesting thought. I have a few vent rib doubles and singles, but never considered the mainenance factor.

a good quality pipe cleaner soaked in oil often works well for me. Being careful with the wire tips of course. I've always been concerned with this area, especially after being out in the rain

I can see under there, no problem, and it is not a pretty sight. Harmful as they say WD-40 is to various surfaces, I just spray the heck out of the underside of the rib and hope for the best. I haven't had one rust all the way through yet, although I have a PHE Parker double trap that has spent a more than a little time outdoors in real bad weather.

Have spent an inordinate amount of time cleaning under the rib on my Remington model 10T.
