Dutch Mannlicher bolt piece

The photo is of a Dutch Mannlicher bolt. Can anyone tell me the name and function of the top piece that slides back and forth? I need to replace it and don't know what it is called.

Re: Stuck Case

Thanks for the suggestions. I tried the brass brush approach first, and the case slid right out. That's a relief.
