Since it locks and unlocks - strip it down ( most likely barrel only ) and give it a good clean .

Forgot to add - most likely barrel will be covered in mixture of dust and all kinds of lubricants . So once cleaned do not use any oils get some graphite powder from local hardware shop and use it instead . It worked well on my Galaxy .
