Many of those old guns, especially ones that have been fired with cartridges shorter (or smaller) than the chamber have eroded areas at the front of the chamber. A proper case expands into that area and is difficult to extract. I know of no good solution except to have the barrel lined to .22 LR, which would destroy the collector value. THe best solution might just be to give the old timer an honorable retirement.
