I'm really thinking its the spring. Because when I stretch it I can pull the pump handle back to cock. Then release the pump handle and without helping with my hand the handle moves all the way foreword. When the spring weakens it won't return to it's foreword firing position with out help. Other then that it's smooth. It just seems the spring gets worn down very easy.
