Did a search hoping to find a common problem and simple solution. Unfortunately, didn't find anything.

Just got my Osprey9 out of jail and took it to range. It's like it is over gassed or something and is having FTF problems. Tough to describe. At one point, the pistol ejected the spent casing AND the next round and loaded the third. Also, the pistol made a couple attempts to load 2 rounds.

All the problems I found seemed related to not enough force coming back (go with lighter spring). In my case, I think it is too much. Any ideas? Thanks!

ETA:  normally, the Gun eats everything. I was shooting 115gr speer practice ammo.

UPDATE

I bought the Wolff extra power recoil calibration pack. Stock no 13140.  http://www.gunsprings.com/index.cfm?page=items&cID=1&mID=5

I started with the 20# spring and didn't have to try anything else. It cycled with no issues and cycled without the suppressor as well.  I believe the stock spring is 17#

I never had that issue with mine. My suppressors had a LID type device. Anyways you can buy heavier recoil springs if you thing that is an issue. I only used 147 gr subsonics so I am not sure...try different ammo...different magazine and different return spring weights...you can buy Wolf guide rod and springs or ISMI I think it is called

I'm going to say over gassed.

When was the last time you changed the recoil spring?

What barrel are you using?

Have you checked that the piston is moving freely in the housing and not binding? Not too much grease on the piston or LID spring?

Not the first owner so I'll assume never.

Barrel is a factory glock.

Regarding your second two questions, I'm not sure.  Not sure what it is supposed to look like. It is brand new, so I don't think it would have too much grease.

I'll look around to see if I can find a video of what a properly installed piston looks like.

Thanks for the replies, guys!

So I checked the piston last night and it was moving fine. Going to change the spring next.

I was having similar troubles with my RTF2 G19 running the Octane 9 HD2; super fast cycling that was causing malfunctions. Sometimes it would engage the slide lock, without me touching it, creating a real-deal WTF failure. Other times it would lock back without me touching the slide lock, and there would be a live round sitting on top of the feeds lips.



I switched to a Wolf guide rod and a heavier spring and the problems have subsided.



Like you said, everyone recommends a lighter spring, but in my case a heavier spring is what cured the problem.

Does your g19 run reliably w/o the can when using the heavier spring?

I just order the wolf extra power spring kit.

I'm using a Glock 23 rsga on my 19 with good results. I hope it keeps the slide closed longer too for less port noise.

It runs fine w/o the can when running the heavier spring, but to be completely honest I've maybe only fired 100-200 rounds this way. Mine is a suppressor host first and foremost, so 99% of the time it wears the can.

Glock uses the same weight spring for the 19 and 23...18lbs

That's incorrect. They're most definitely different on the Gen 4 models!
