That's due to the slightly worn cocking slot which intead of just pushing the cocking pin forward starts to push it sideways, when it stiffens you can push or pull the stabiliser unit to free it. I can be helped by slightly radiusing the cocking pin but the only sure way is to fit a ball bearing race on the end of the pin as Steyr now do to new rifles. Don't be tempted to grease the cocking slot or pin as it will soon make it's way to the hammer.
