If you can take the magazine apart give the insides a good scrubbing and cleaning with clp. Clean the slide release and lube with clp. Just make sure the magazine isn't dripping with clp just a very very very light coat. If that doesn't work wait for the new mags as the spring in your current one is probably worn
The spring was cheap. so I just went ahead and bought one. I'm going to put it in the gun and see if it improves anything. Even if it doesn't, it never hurts to have a spare.

I also took the gun to the range just to see if the reliability problems were still there. I fired a mag and a half through it without one single problem. The slide even locked back after the last round like it's supposed to and didn't release on it's own when I took out the mag.

excellent!!

sounds fixed to me.

new springs never hurt neither do new mags.
