M4 repair, is it worth it?

I recently bought a cosmetically good Leica M4, but it has occasional wind on jamming. The winding lever jams halfway through about every 5th stroke. When jammed, the jam can be released by moving the shutter speed dial. That releases it for some reason. Needless to say the seller did not mention anything about this, I thought I was buying a mint condition fully working camera.

Now I wonder whether it would make sense to get this repaired. Is there anyone reading this who could estimate how big of a problem this probably is and would it make sense to get it repaired?

Thank you for your insights!
