you don't need to replace it that's fine, when locked up the underlever "pulls" the compression tube onto the barrel sealing the breech onto the seal, you have to have a little play to allow the cocking link to pivot in the tube as you cock it, and that play is magnified by the length of the underlever. it's tiny really.

The only time you need to be concerned is if the cocking link is slack when the breech is shut and the underlever locked up with the rifle cocked as this points to the breech seal not being compressed properly.
