I've removed the shutter blades also and re-assembled them now - they're clean. They open up and work no-problem, except for that they do the action as I release the cocking "plunger" immediately

There is a tiny notch that is supposed to move into place when the cocking mechanism reaches the end - but it seems like it's missing a spring or something. Someone before me took this apart...
