DM7 Detents

Hey guys, the DM7 I have in my sig doesn't have the regular detents. I have ordered new detents from Dye and tried to install them, once installed they feel great by finger touch. As soon as I try shooting a few balls through the detents get stuck in. I've clean the detent opening multiple times, realigned the eye pipe and inspected it for cracks or anything that could be causing this. Has anybody had this issue, should I find a slightly stronger spring? Thanks for the help guys.

Yeah that's going to be a tricky one. I wonder if major Hardware store such ad Home Depot, Lowes, or ACE will have a small stiff spring.
