Generally 3-point jams (which is what I think this is) are attributable to the extractor. Usually due to too much tension on the extractor.

I don't think it is a 3 point jam because i am able to push the slide closed very easily after the jam occurs i can even just tap the bottom of the mag and it will close. I am leaning towards the recoil spring being bad as i have no idea how many rounds went down the pipe before i got this used. I am sure it is something simple just have to figure it out!

Any other thoughts? Am i right or wrong in my assumptions?

Looks like you bought it used. I would always replace the springs immediately on a used pistol. Perhaps that is all it is.

Ok i just ordered a Wolff 21 and 18 lb kit to see which one it works better with. How hard is it to replace the Springs? It looks like it will be easy to replace the larger spring but i don't know how to dissemble the guide rod to get to the other spring. Is there a guide online? I have searched and didn't find one.

Thanks for the suggestions!!!
