I had this problem with my model 65-2 smith and wesson. My problem turned out to be a loose main spring tension screw. It's located on the front strap of the grip frame. If I recall correctly, you should have some one piece rubber grips on your gun, am I correct? You'll want to find out if yours is equipped with this screw, and if so, get those grips off and make sure that thing's tight.

If that isn't the issue, I would lay the blame on the mainspring being weakened, and would need to be replaced, which is also a very simple operation. It's a along the lines of "monkey see, monkey do"

Is it brand new or used? And what ammo are you using? Are there any mods to it, such as a bobbed hammer?

They should. If not, then yeah, unload on them.

Sounds like a weak hammer main spring.
