I have a model 59 that I bought in the 70's and it has been flawless.
That being said has yours been stored for awhile?
I am no expert by any means, but I would field strip it and clean and lube, there are a ton of videos on u-tube.
I have had oil dry up before so I go old school and run my wet.
I use Lucas Oil Products.

I would completely disassemble the pistol and examine all of the parts in particular the hammer/sear engagement and safety/decocking lever. If you're not familiar with working on guns then you'll have to take it to a gunsmith. It sounds like something is worn out. But there's no way to tell unless the gun is taken apart.
