i have seen other threads on this topic, but I think I need “special help”. I was given a semi-compact, 9mm Baby Eagle II which seemed to work okay when I first tested it out. I will say the force required to rack the slide seemed excessive to me even with the hammer pre-cocked. Never one to leave well enough alone, I promptly installed a Vortex Venom red dot on a Burris mounting plate attached to the rear sight dovetail. Now the gun is giving me an occasional light strike mid-magazine in single action. So not when I cock the hammer by hand or when I recock the hammer after a failure. I’m thinking the slight extra weight has put me on the edge of full recoil and is causing the hammer to occasionally not be fully cocked. So far this hasn’t happened after the last round though, so I haven’t seen a failure of the slide to lock back. If I’m right, a simple fix for most guns would be a very slightly lighter recoil spring, but this isn’t most guns. There are two recoil springs nested together and the weights of them are not known by anybody at either Magnum Research, the importer, or IWI USA, the domestic affiliate of the Israeli manufacturer. Wolff lists the single spring used in the full size version, but nothing for the semi-compact. Magnum has the identical replacements, but that doesn’t help me as I want to do some experimentation with spring weights. Does anyone have any idea what I can do? Thanks.
