I would first try to use the magazines you have. Sometimes these type of FTF are caused by oily magazines that collects burnt powder residue that takes strength away from the spring due to the resistance; your magazines should be clean without any oil or grease; this will allow the spring to work at it's strongest. Many magazines come with oil inside to prevent rusting, but it all needs to be removed. I would take your magazines apart and clean them. If the problem persists, you might want to try some stronger magazine springs.
