S&W 41 light primer strikes


I have a very high mileage S&W 41 that has grown erratic. Shoots fine for awhile then will hardly touch the rim. Local gunsmith reamed the chamber and it ran fine for about 400 rounds and then went back to erratic hits. I don't believe the ammo is an issue because I purchase bulk quantities of CCI standard velocity. I wonder if the gun may need springs etc. When light strikes happen, the slide appears fully forward. I've dry fired it and shot it a lot with very few issues for 43 years. Mostly mag problems that I can remember.

Thanks for you ideas.
