if you have the new colt barrel throat dont let a smith touch it.

you prolly just need a new recoil spring. the springs in the very small compacts wear out fast under recoil.

You cannot beat the Wilson Combat magazines. They were much more reliable than the factory magazines that came with my Kimber.
