Default winchester m37A cocking problem

The gun is a winchester m37a 410 ga. & looks good, shoots good. The problem is the hammer cannot be cocked unless the gun snapped closed hard. if it is closed normaly the hammer will not cock. Any suggestions?

Welcome to the FTF. Stop by the "Introductions" area.

Now that we have been introduced, I do not know how clean the inside is to your firearm, but if gunk is not allowing the firearm to go properly in battery, then, yes, you will have problems.
Suggest you see a smith in your area.
