    Once first round has been fired, the bolt hangs up, you have to use slight force (just a touch) and it returns to battery.

    Whats the general consensus? might it be the Main Spring, other ?

    tks

    Could be a light recoil spring, or a bit of dirt in the chamber, or lack of lubricant, or something else. Many Lugers have had the recoil spring cut down for use with lighter U.S. loads, so that is another possibility.
