Coonan firing pin spring

I recently published a model B Coonan and ordered new recoil and firing pin spring from Wolf springs.
The new recoil spring works fine, but the new firing pin spring does not. One side of the spring slips on easy, the other side tight. Both ways when the pistol is fired leaves the firing pin sticking out of the breach causing the firing pin stop to fall off.
Has anyone else experienced this problem. I'm using the spring that came with the pistol.
Thank you in advance.

Unless you're trying to accomplish something by changing the spring rate of the firing pin spring, stick with the OEM. I've seen original springs in guns that I have testimonials from the owner the gun had never been touched since they got it. I have one with a spring from at least WW2 and it works.
Life's too short to shoot an ugly gun.
