Found a Transition DVC-P at my LGS...

I was checking in at one of my local gun stores for something completely different and saw they had one last DVC-P in stock. It was one that was the old DVC-P with the Gen 2 grip. In the end, I walked out of the dealer for the same price as the XC retails for, and they even installed my SRO for free.

I took it out today and put about 500 rounds through it, but ran into a problem. Eventually, the slide started hesitating and not wanting to go back into battery.

I'm pretty sure 90% of the issue is lube, but I want to put a stronger recoil spring in it. Does anyone know what the stock spring is and what weight I should go to for shooting full power Speer Lawman 124/147 grain 9mm?

Also, anyone know a good place to get extra magazines and/or recommend a good magazine loader? My Maglula does not like the extra girth of the 9mm/38 Super mags.

My XC has either an 8 or 9 lb Dawnson tool-less setup (I just forget which).

I have maybe 800-1000 rounds through mine and it has fed both ball and hollowpoints fine.

I am sort of torn on whether I like the recoil impulse of the 124 or 147 better. Still have more testing to do, but at this juncture I am NOT altering the spring. I usually DO mess with that stuff but no reason on my XC.

Also, I don’t use magazine loaders so I can’t help you there. Dawn’s site has a ton of mags in stock for a fair price (or did as of the other day)

500 rounds? Did you clean and lube it before you hit the range? You should always break in your guns very wet. Also make sure you clean out the barrel chamber well. Could be packing lube in there or build up from dirty ammo.

I did clean it, but likely didn't lube it anywhere near enough.

Sounds like a lemon pistol. Might as well just sell it to me at a big loss to be rid of it.
