Ive got an older break barrel shotgun that when broken open with too much force it gets stuck. Im not sure which part is screwed up but here are some pictures, either the pin is too short or the catch in the receiver is worn away.

A good all-around gunsmith could diagnose and fix, but even if you could find one, they probably would not want to do it, as the cost of the work would be high.  You might try a shim using credit card material or moleskin or etc. to see if you could ease it open without it seizing up on you.  Work through it with different materials.  You might be able to find a spacer/shim that will restore most of normal function.  Kind of rube-goldberg, but it may work.
