    Austin, have you had the trigger group out of the receiver and cleaned it? A lot of times it is just gunk that causes these kinds of issues.

    Could be a condition known as 'short-trigger', as the trigger wears slightly it allows the hammer to move forward enough so the hook on the action slide lock has trouble catching on the lug of the hammer; as a former Winchester authorized gunsmith I have repaired this often overlooked condition many times, especially if it is an older gun and has had a great deal of use.
