    Wolf doesn't sell any. Or can I just stretch the spring a little?
    The slide doesn't close 1/4" or so on a new round. Real easy to push it into battery.
    Thanks for your help!

    You can get a new spring from Numrich Gun Parts Corporation. You are sure the little pistol just doesn't need a through cleaning? If you order the spring I would order some firing pins as they break, especially if the pistol is dry fired. Anyway, use the link and order whatever you need or want. I would not stretch the existing spring.

    Stretching a coil spring just further weakens it.

    Like bending a paper-clip back and forth.

    Yep, at best stretching a spring is a temporary fix. With all respect, it might be a good idea to consider purchasing a better gun.

    Thanks for your help guys! The gun was givin to me yrs ago, and just been sitting in the safe. I finally got some 25 ammo and decided to play with it. I was very shocked, at 20' the pistol grouped a golfball group! I figured it would give me a 10" group. I have plenty of good pistols, just thought I'd give it a workout.
    Thanks for all your input!
