I have a Winchester 101 Pigeon that has an odd quirk.

If I open the gun with the stock parallel to the ground (ejecting the shells behind me), the top lever stays locked to the right, and I can reload and fire again with no problem.

If I open the gun by resting the barrels on a pad, and then moving the lever to the right, the lever fails to stay locked, and returns to the firing position. When it does this, I am unable to close the gun without moving the lever to the right, holding it and then closing the gun.

Is this a simple fix, like a spring replacement, or do I need to have a gunsmith work on it?? I don't mind doing minor fixes (firing pin replacement, etc) but I don't understand the mechanical movement governing this situation.

Thanks for any advise, even if it is 'bring it to a 'smith'!

That's odd, hit the latch with a air compressor and brake cleaner. I but there is a piece of shot or something that needs to come out
