8/16 a few snags?

...this was the 5th time out with the new guide rod and spring. I brought a box of 50 Fiocchi 95gr FMJ (blue box) and a box of Fiocchi 95gr FMJ (red box). Pistol had been cleaned after last time out although I was out of compressed air so maybe not as well as usual? Used the 6 round mags . I wound up having a FTF midway through the first box of ammo (blue box) and then the last round from that box fired but the case got hung up by the slide? The nest box of ammo ran fine, no problems? The first snag happened with about 435 rounds fired on this spring so that's way shy of the 1000 suggested lifespan. I picked up some compressed air and gave her a good cleaning afterwards. I figure I'll give it a go with the same spring (looks fine) and use both ammos again next time out and see what happens?

I'm pretty sure the only guns that work perfectly, are movie and TV guns. And they never run out of bullets either. Where can I get one?
