I just bought a winchester model 12 , 12 ga shotgun. What I want to know is ......is it normal to have to push the release button behind the trigger guard to work the action after firing a shot?

The short answer is no.

The release is only required when the internal hammer is cocked. Same with all pump guns.

Try dry firing the gun. The slide should work without having to operate the release.
