If it fails to go into battery, light recoil spring would make it worse. Try a strong recoil spring and/or a light striker spring.

Or, the FTF is caused by the lighter loads not being able to cycle the slide far enough preventing a full stroke to load the next round. Im running into this right now on gamer 130PF 147gr loads.

 

OP, what round/load are you using? Any other mods on the gun?

Set up a phone/camera looking at the ejection port and record. Then watch in slow motion. That will show you what path to take.

For factory ammo, im not sure then. 

 

Does it run fine with the same ammo not supressed?

Maybe a dumb question, but does your suppressor have a neilson device?

My mind still says lighter recoil spring. Perhaps the weight of the can increasing pressure/friction on the barrel/slide is making it cycle slow enough that the recoil spring is stopping it partial stroke.

Yeah, factory gen 5 34 is 17lb, so youre on the right track.

Just swap it out with an ISMI 13lb spring. Sending rounds into battery shouldn't be an issue neither should getting the gun to cycle completely.

Gen 5 G34s wont stay in battery with stock striker springs and a 13# ismi recoil spring... Ask me how I know...

 

Works fine with a 4.5# striker spring though
