Are you using a newer heavier recoil Spring or have a recoil buffer? Could be why. Also have you always used Blazer ammo and you didn't mention what the buller weight and grain is. Just could be a batch of under powered ammo? You said you're trying different ammo at next session that's the best way to check. Good Luck

I'm with the idea Stinger has, probably the ammo. Its not enough to cycle effectively. I don't use Blazers in any of my pistols. I don't like it. Is it cheap? Sure, but I think its cheap. I'm ok buying WWB as my 'lowest' box of ammo.

I recently had a customer bring me a new, stock Colt Gov't .45 and a box of Blazer brass case ammo. Gun would not function. Pistol spec'ed out fine. Ran fine on anything but the Blazer. I bought a box of brass case Blazer and tried it in my personal .45 that will usually eat anything. Had 3 malf's caused by what felt like light loads.

older P14 running Blazer ammo will not cycle like it should it does not engage fully so you pull it back a little and release it any ideas ? i am trying new ammo this weekend
I had a similar problem and I thought it might be ammo or recoil spring but it turned out to be my fault as I hadn't cleaned the chamber well enough and there was a slight 'build-up". I was using WWB at the time and found it pretty dirty to shoot. Now I use Blazer 'brass case' at the range without a problem. But I also sometimes use HydraShoks, Ranger SXT, and some various reloads....all the ammo is either 230gr. or 200gr. No problems with any of it since I became a little more careful with my cleaning procedures. Your problem cause may be different but improper cleaning was the cause of my problem.
