Are you just twisting the forearm back and forth or are you adding some forward motion? IINM, the W-1897 unlocks with a forward motion of the forearm. More modern guns typically unlock with the action of the hammer falling (or a release control).

As with any newly acquired older gun, have a competent smith give it a safety check before you try any trigger time. You don't want a bolt for lunch.
