I recently purchased a No4 Mk1/3 and i have a main question about it. The rifle is in excellent condition and has a 5 groove barrel that is crisp with no pitting. The bolt is numbers matching with a number 1 head. However when you rack the bolt and "lock it forward" but do not put the bolt handle all the way down. You can still dry fire and the bolt handle will go down to the fully locked position. Is this normal operation for these rifles? I have never handled one before and it's seems weird to me. Other than that the rifle is in great condition and stocked up tightly in the wood and there is no pitting on any of the parts and it's otherwise very clean.

I made a video to help explain.

Thank You,
