    Some time back I was having a problem with my slide locking
    back on the last round.I had tried different mags and different
    slide stops.The best luck I had was when I switched to Wilson
    mags{thanks again fellas}and that pretty much cured it.Once
    in a while however,it would still not lock back on the last rnd.
    I took it down once again and this time I looked at my recoil
    spring.Duh,I remembered that I had changed it to a very light
    spring I think around 11#.I had a Wolff 18 1/2# spring so I
    changed it over.Lo and behold not once did it fail to lock
    back on the last rnd.You know, if it ain't broke don't fix it.
    Wonder when I'm gonna start paying attention to this.....

    Yup.....a weak recoil spring will do that to ya.

    I've got 4 different springs that I use with 4 different handloads......been there, done that.
