1978 911 SC Occassional unsmooth shift


Vehicle Information: Model: 911sc ; Year: 1978; Body Type: Targa; Total Mileage: 122,500;

I occassionally feel a "popping/snapping" sensation as I shift from 1st to 2nd gear. It feels as if the stick snaps/pops into second when I initiate the shift, rather than smoothly being pulled into second. Despite this occassional strange feeling (which occurs about every fifth time I shift from 1st to 2nd), second gear always engages. Also, the "popping/snapping" never occurs twice in a row. In all other respects, the car shifts very smoothly. Any ideas what could be causing this occasional "popping"? and is it something to be concerned about?
