I think if I were you I would take it to a reputable gunsmith and have it checked out. Restore it to original and don't mess with it anymore. A good smith will fix it right and you shouldn't have anymore problems.

I don't know how you can tell that new springs will fix the problem without looking at the gun!

If the engagement surfaces have been tampered with, you may be looking at new parts. A gunsmith can tell. Or you can get Kuhnhausen's book and try to fix it yourself.

only one thing makes it go bang, that is the hammer striking the firing pin, if the hammer spring is to light then it wouls cause this gun to misfire:burnout:

eBay's got 'em, but not cheap. Original Colt grips for even a common model like the MKIII are getting expensive. Don't wait too long.
