Now it's very clear to me why no one was importing this firearm.
It is not a common problem. I have over 8k on my 5 y/o carry on the original springs. Never had a problem with the sister to mine (wife's), the spare that I bought before Magnum Research brought them back is a '93, used, and just started to have FTF issues (that goes away when I swap springs).
