Nikon F2 - Blank frames

Ok, so I picked up a Nikon F2AS on eBay for a smoking good price and the camera seems to work fine BUT on a roll of 24 exposures anywhere from 3 to 6 consecutive frames will be blank. Blank like the shutter never opened. All the other frames are properly exposed. I've shot 3 rolls of film at different shutter speeds from 1/15 to 1/2000 with the same results. I can take the back off and fire the camera all day long and the shutter never misses a beat. At the price I got it for I might just send it for an overhaul rather than return it (any 50 year old camera deserves a CLA once in its life) but I wish I could figure out if it is the shutter or if I'm doing something stupid. This isn't my 1st F2 either.
