you can learn a lot about slicking up a lever gun here https://marauder.homestead.com/files/TUNING_M_1894.htm a slick gun is a whole different animal than a factory one.
i thought the same, not pushing the case in all the way.
In addition, you might try holding the gun in your left hand around the receiver so your finger can hold the round, and use the nose of the next round to push it the rest of the way.
That aftermarket gate looks too loosey-goosey to me.
That will have a detrimental effect on proper feeding. It might just be you have to remove the gloves.
Seems as if the round isn't making it past the gate.
I have never, in 40 years of levergunning, gotten that staging silliness to work reliably.
Practice, practice, practice.
Not a huge deal, I was just hoping to stage the rounds in the tube as seen below.
Try asking in the 1894 forum on marlinowners. They're smart.
