Shooting standard velocity ammo with a spring rated for higher velocity ammo could cause the problem you described. I'd pick up both standard and +P ammo and see which functions best.

Then you'll know.

Because berettas are notorious for doing that. Just replacing the spring you should be able to get them at any local gun store.

You realise the spring pulls the slide forward right?

The thought was almost right. Just backwards. Brain farts happen.

Yeah never owned one because of hearing about there springs being crappy. Not a big fan of the 9mm. The Beretta 92 are reliable don't get me wrong and yes i realize it pushes forward lol. Just don't like decocking and all the bells and whistles.

Where is this Beretta having bad springs or not shooting 115 grain bullets coming from?

If it were going to have problems it would be with bigger heavier bullets.

Mine has only been fed 115 gr and never a flaw. Easy to test with different bullets but also take a look and make sure there isn't something else going wrong.

My 92 slides like its on butter.

Yeah never had a problem with mine. I put the solid steel recoil spring assembly in mine though and it feels like a heavier spring in it. I shoot whatever I can out it and never had an issue. and yes the slide feels like it rides on ball bearings. So smooth.

Sounds more like a coating issue to me. 92F's will run filthy, seen em do it time and time again so I would think its a non common element being the coating. You can change the spring for good measure but I would clean it, buy a couple of different boxes of ammo and retest.
