The "two little notches in the foregrip"... Could be :
The lock plate mortice cut..just the styling for the back action lock the rifle is using...
Or
The ramrod entry in the stock...
Depending on just what you mean by "two little notches"...

Yea I think ur right as I look closer they seem to be just part of design and the one photo show metal there so it’s not a hole.

With such a short foregrip it reminded me of blunderbuss swivel mount (deck gun might be proper name for those blunderbuss ones?). That’s what got me thinking of swivel mount. But those blunderbuss ones had a big hole in the foregrip there and a bolt going though it. So the swivel mount thinking is probably off track.
