When pressing the magazine release button on my PT145 Milennium Pro, about 30% of the time does the spring release the magazine the way it should. (Spring & gravity does all the work and the magazine pops out without effort)
The rest of the time, when I insert the magazine I can hear a slight 'sproing' and I'll know the magazine will have to be pulled from the frame of the pistol.
It's not a huge issue, but it is annoying....is this a magazine spring issue? I haven't taken the gun down any farther than the typical field stripping.

Look in the open ejection port after the "Sproing" and see if the magazine follower has popped up over the slide stop.
The follower should always remain under the slide stop in order to not only lock the slide back, but also allow the empty mag to fall free when the mag release is pushed in.
