Who is still modifying Mosin bolts for sniper restorations

Just acquired a 1918 Webley MK VI. I completely dis-assembled it. cleaned it part by part, oiled it and re-assembled it today. I noticed something a little odd that I'm not used to seeing with other revolvers. When cocking the pistol for single action , I notice the cylinder chamber is not quite ali...
