Side plate a screw are flush and tight.
Everything seams clean, but i’ll give it a once over.
What’s the normal tension against the cartridges, because mine feels pretty weak?

In my short experience with 2 Krags, I wouldn't classify the tension against the cartridge in either of them as anything approaching weak - but that is subjective. 

The 98 sporter I have wouldn't properly feed the final cartridge, even though the pressure seemed substantial. A spring change corrected the problem (I wouldn't have been able to tell the difference in the way the spring 'felt').  If all the parts are clean, correct and properly fitting, a weak spring may be the problem.

Thanks everyone for all the good feed back, cleaning and lube haven't helped. I'm thinking a new spring is the next step.

Success!  Cheesy
Replaced the spring and it feeds like a champ.
Thanks again to everyone for all the good advice.
