Is the Wolff guide rod a full length or short rod? I have a Government 380 that had constant problems with the spring binding and jamming the gun. Once I converted it to use a full length rod the binding stopped.
The recoil spring should have one end that is tighter to the rod than the other end. The tightest end goes on first leaving the larger end free to compress and expand on the guide rod.
