p95 recoil spring replacement?

Any one have a source for lighter recoil springs for a p95?
Already checked the Wolff website with no luck, got trigger springs for 95 but not the recoil.
Having major problems with a p95 fail to extract, already tried replacing the extractor with no luck. Now I'm wondering if a heavy recoil spring might be the problem slowing down the slide?

*Yeah, I know "limp wristing" but when six other shooters with at least 25 years of shooting experience each have the same problem...........I sure don't think it's that?

When you say problems with extraction,what exactly is happening? Is the casing staying in the chamber,or is it not holding onto the casing rim long enough to strike the ejector and kick it clear of the action?

Fired shell stays in chamber while new round tries to feed from magazine. Usually 1-2 times per mag load using 6 different ruger brand mags (3 stainless,3 blue).
Extractor was replaced with new one from ruger, pistol was also taken to local gunsmith to "adjust" said extractor. After that didn't help, pistol was return to gunsmith who told me gun worked fine and I was "limp wristing" the pistol. Problem with that is it also did the same thing to my brother/nephew and my two sons, all shooters that have at least 25 years handling firearms!

If the case is staying put in the chamber,then it's not a recoil spring issue. I'll bet it's an extractor/slide face interference issue or a chamber that has issues. How easily do the cases come out when manually racking the slide when unfired?

Not a problem! Extractor was replaced and even given to a gunsmith to "tweak" but still had the problem? When returned to him he said he and another ran 20 some rounds thru the gun without a hitch and said we were limp wristing the gun..
A week later my brother and adult sons did some shooting and everyone had problems with the gun. My brother and I are in our sixty's and the "kids" run from 33-40 years of age, all big guys with plenty of experience shooting all sorts of firearms(all started shooting from the age of 5 or so). The four other 9mm pistols we had didn't give us problems but that damn p95 sure did!

Really at my wits end with this gun?

I can't see how limp-wristing the gun will cause this problem. Jams from limp-wristing the gun are typically a stovepipe jam with the casing out of the chamber,and not fully ejected before the next cartridge is grabbed by the slide to be chambered. You've got an extraction issue. I'm wondering if the chamber on the barrel assembly is too loose and is causing the cases to swell from the pressure upon firing. This could cause the extractor to have issues in extracting the spent casing from the chamber.

I can see why you are frustrated . If it were mine, it would be on its' way back to the Ruger factory for service. I'm curious as to why you went to a local gunsmith in lieu of sending it back to the factory? Although I've been fortunate to never need it, from all I've heard and read, Ruger service is among the very best.

jlangton, I agree with you; it's always been a stove-pipe issue with pistol or even a auto-loading shotgun if the firearm don't have something to work against, not a extracting problem.

BuckJM53, I goofed......went local because I needed then, not 3-4 weeks from now but that's all changed. Sent gun back to ruger 3-4 days ago. hopefully they will fix it and not send it back with a "nothing wrong with it, it works fine" note attached to it?

First time in 60 years of shooting that I ever ran into a problem like this? (We start them young in my family!)

Based on your earlier description, I have to believe that they will be able to duplicate the problem. Please make sure to update us on your experience with the Ruger Service Dept., and ultimately what the problem was.
