I suspect your gun was subjected to "Rambo" techniques of slamming the magazine in real hard. If replacing the spring doesn't fix it, it probably needs a new magazine latch and possibly new magazines.

Yes, you can expect the mag latch to be much stiffer with the new spring. Check your magazines for wear. There is a notch where the mag latch snaps in to the magazine. If the magazine has been abused, the notch will be rounded instead of a sharp edge.
