The other rifles have no interference with the round as it pushed into the chamber.

DoubleD - do you have any old literature from BSA, etc. that explicitly states or shows that this is the normal condition (i.e. that the breechblock should slightly block entry of a fresh cartridge)?

I have never heard/seen this anywhere and all the small frame (and large frame, for that matter) martinis I have had over the years, and still have, all allow the cartridge to slide right into the chamber without lowering the lever against mainspring pressure.
