need info on win model 12

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

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.
