Definitely disassemble the recoil spring assembly & clean...on the lube, I would check w/ Winchester on whether these are designed to run dry or lubed. I know on the Benellis the recoil spring assy is made to run dry.

Its pretty easy. Take a phillips screwdriver, spit on the shaft of it (to keep it from tearing the rubber on your pad), and run it through the holes on your buttpad. Take off the buttpad, then take a deep socket (I think its 3/4) and remove the retaining nut that holds the stock on, which will leave your spring tube. There'll be a plastic plug in the back end of the tube. Depress it with a flat screw driver and pull out the retaining pin. BE CAREFUL, because the spring is under pressure and will fly out the end if you don't keep a handle on it. Pull the spring out, clean it, and LIGHTLY lube it with something lighter than RemOil. Put it back together and you should be ready to go.

That spring needs to be kept clean and no rust. Guys wonder why their action slows down--that is why.
