Off Topic, But Where?

Regular 9mm works okay, but sometimes he gets a double-tap when he pulls the single shot trigger, and we are thinking this might be due to the bolt not cycling back far enough for sear engagement. it is not a persistent problem, but if he could get the +P+ as a good price, it eliminates the problem, and would not cause undue harm to his nice firearm (all original & all matching) would it be worth it?

I BELIEVE THERE WAS A SMALL (LIGHT) AMOUNT OF SURFACE RUST IN THE CHAMBER WHEN HE GOT IT..(THE LITTLE OLD WIDOW LADY DUG IT OUT OF THE CLOSET AND ASKED OUR LOCAL SHERIFF IF HE KNEW OF ANY ONE WHO WOULD LIKE IT). AFTER A CAREFULE SCRUBBING AND A LITTLE FIRING THE RUST SEEMED TO HAVE DISAPPEARED, BUT THERE MAY STILL BE JUST A MINUTE AMOUNT IN THERE, JUST ENOUGH POSSIBLY TO INTERFERE EVERY NOW AND AGAIN. AS FAR AS THE MAINSPRING I AM GUESSING IT IS ORIGINAL OR ONE FROM A PARTS KIT, I KNOW HE BOUGHT ONE (PARTS KIT) FROM INTER-ORDNANCE..I WILL HAVE TO SEE IF PERHAPS WOLFF SPRINGS MAKE ONE FOR THIS FIREARM, I AM GOING TO ORDER A SPRING KIT FROM THEM FOR MY REISING WHEN THE PAPERWORK COMES IN.

I'd try this before I looked any closer at the other factors that can effect reliability in any subgun.
In experimenting, I found that 115 gr. fires with a very slow cyclic rate, with occasional failures to feed. 90 gr. cycled, but the bolt would not move to the rear far enough to pick up the sear, and the gun went "put, put, put" until the magazine was empty.

The labels for WWII Italian 9mm are labeled:
CARTUCCE CAL. 9MM.PER MOSCHETTO AUTOM. BERETTA M. 38SCIOLTES p. A GIULIO FIOCCHI - LECCO
Your mileage may vary.

Any resolution on this?
Saw some Czech 9mm meant only for SMGs going for $12/100.

Like I said it only happened on semi, so when he shot on FA the built up momentum by the time he release the trigger was enough to engage the sear....Now if I can just get my Reising to function properly (see Reising board for that story).
