Takumars with stuggish apertures

I have a Super Takumar 50/1.4 and 28/3.5 that both have sluggish apertures. Neither lens appears to have oil on the aperture blades. Any idea why they would be sluggish anyway? Is it difficult to get to the apertures on these lenses? I looks like removing the front trim ring must be the first step.
