SX3 issues please help.

I have an old SX3 that I have ran 15000+ rounds through and she has never gave me any issues. went out last weekend to shoot some clays and it started jamming empty cartridge's when trying to eject them.
I have strip this thing down to bare bones and cleaned it and it is still doing it. Would it be my action spring going bad that could cause this??

Try cleaning out the gas ports in the barrel may be clogging and reducing pressure for ejection. I have long drills that I use to clean the holes I do it by hand not on a powered drill.

If cleaning the ports doesn't work, your springs may need to be replaced. Rule of thumb on my Berettas is somewhere between 5 and 10K they get replaced.
