Honeywell ES mirror sticking....

I just got a nice looking Pentax ES and the shutter fires on all speeds (I haven't tested the lower speeds since I do not have a battery), but every few snaps the mirror stays up. I can re-cock the shutter and it will come down. Any idea what I can do? thanks

It could be sticky bumper pads for the mirror or needs a cla or both.
