My Beretta Silver Pigeon does not close properly!

Also, the top lever does not fully centralise when the gun is closed. Is this normal?

Clay pigeon shooting
This is quite normal, and nothing to worry about.

The stiffness will disappear after a few hundred shots, as the jointing and ejector mechanism get ‘run in.’

It may take a little longer for the bolt and top lever mechanism to bed in, but eventually the top lever will centralise.
