The tension of the slide tends to correlate with the caliber of the firearm. A more powerful round usually needs a heavier spring to absorb the recoil to prevent damage to the moving parts. It also needs enough force on the return cycle to strip a new round from the magazine. Higher magazine capacity means higher spring tension on the rounds within it; leading to the need for an appropriate return force. Everything about the firearm you change can lead to a failure if not properly engineered. With all that said the unfortunate reality is under most circumstances you can not lighten the 9mm Parabellum to the same slide pull weight of a .380 which is actually a 9mm Kurtz (short) in Europe.

Why would you need a letter of authenticity? It is a rifle, made by the company that made it. Authenticity would only be needed if your grandfather was General Custer and was the rifle he carried at Little Big Horn.

If you write to the maker, they will only tell you when it was made and possibly the dealer it was sold to.

You can find the date of manufacture on most makes online using Google

Have you checked the barrel. If the pellets are coming out of the clip, they have to be in the barrel.

Maybe apply some lite gun oil, and tap gently hopefully this will loosen it. Can be of more help if you can tell which part you jammed in there lol
