I gave STI a call. They immediately said an "upgraded" recoil spring should fix the problem and they would have one in the mail the next day. It showed up a few days later. When I get back in town next week I'll let you know the verdict.

For the fun of it, double check the breech face area where the firing ping extends out.
Make sure that the firing pin did not create a bur.

Well I got the spring from STI. It's thicker and about 3/16" longer than the original spring, but I still think it's too short. Definitely noticed an improvement. The slide will always close completely when empty now. Took it to the range. Still about 1 out of every 20 rounds doesn't want to fully chamber. Huge improvement but not good enough. The slide with travel the remaining 1/8" easily if I push it with my thumb.

Also had 2 rounds FTE. My reloads won't shoot at all. They will not chamber. Case must be expanded too much. I'll have to play around some and see.
