hello everyone sorry if this has been asked before. i have been searching everywhere but cant find a direct answer for my specific question. so ok, the very first pistol i bought is a 9mm tuarus pt111 millenium pro, jan 2014 will put the purchase at 10yrs ago. for the most part it has been put/locked up for the first 8 yrs or so, strickly a tool for home defense. as my kids have grown older ive been teaching them safty, care, maintenace & propr use. we've been going out to the range w/it for the last couple yrs. now its only had about 500-600 rounds through it w/no probs, after the last time i brought it home to clean it like always & i noticed the magazine was getting pretty dirty so i took it apart cleaned it up put it back together & now its giving me problems. sometimes during the ejection the casing will get caught in the slide (stove pipe) sometimes the empty case will remain chambered, not ejected at all, & sometimes when cycling dummy rounds a round will come out of the chamber without a forcble ejection & the next round will push it to the side causing it to get jammed (bullet forward, primer side rearward) in the ejection port jamming the slide open almost looks like a double feed ...sorry hard to explain...never any problems before i cleaned the mag. fyi i am 31 yrs old i have been shooting since i was 4 or 5 yrs old im very familiar with firearms, but this is actually the first time i've ever disassembled & reassembled a pistol magazine so its probably something i did, but i can assure that its not a limp wristing issue, or anything like that. if anyone has any advise i would appreciate it. thank you in advance

Has it been stored with ammo in the magazine? If so that's probably what the problem is. The mag spring is worn out and not feeding/ejecting properly.
