I've got a ruger p90 that i've probably easily put 1000+ rounds through. As of late the slide won't close all the way when shooting. Is it the recoil spring or something else thats worn out?? You can usually push it closed with your thumb.

That was going to be my first recommendation - good cleaning, followed by good lubrication.

They have it right. An automatic pistol needs to be cleaned very regularly. The worse the weather the more often the need for cleaning. Some types of ammo are worse than others as far as deposits.

Look on line there are instructions on completely dis-assembling your gun for cleaning. Just Google the brand and model. Youtube has videos too.

I have a CCP. The pistol I carry gets cleaned weekly even if I do not fire it. You would be surprised at the crap that gets in it just carrying it around in a dirty/dusty environment.

You do not want to have a gun that jams when you really need it. If it jams it is nothing but a small club.

More than likely the gun needs cleaning but sometimes the ammo can cause the gun to jamb. I'm wondering if you changed ammo recently and if you are using new factory ammo or reloads. I've gotten reloaded ammo that wasn't sized correctly and wouldn't chamber at all.

Sorry i guess i should have mentioned i clean it everytime i get home from the range, so cleaning isn't the problem. The last time i went to the range it started jamming after about 20 rounds, i stripped it, cleaned it real good, then got about 5 rounds out before it started jamming. Not reloads, some of it worked fine so it leads me to beleive it's the gun. It used to shoot whatever ammo i had. Guess i'll just spend $10 on a recoil spring and see what happens.

You say you clean it but do you get it all as it should be and then do you also lube it after cleaning. As for reloads what is wrong with shooting them?? I hunt with reloads and reload lots of rounds and have had little if any problems with them as a matter of fact have less problem with them then what I buy

From what I can find it sounds like the recoil spring is getting weak.

9mms seal on the case mouth so they have a tight fit. remove the barrel and fill with something like cop out or no9 and let it sit overnight. If you have only put 1000 rds through it its barely broke in.

I vote for a better cleaning than you've been doing. It's either a dirty chamber or oversize case.

I use a chamber brush on an electric drill.

If it's the ammo, have you changed brands, lots, reloads???

Maybe not your problem, but back in '87 or so I built up an AR-15 carbine. I would jam often enough that I was ready to get rid of it. Checked headspacing and all and didn't matter what ammo I used. Went out shooting one day with BIL and used one of his magazines and it didn't jam! All of the used surplus magazines I bought were worn/warped enough to give me fits.

If all else fails after you've followed these other guys advise on cleaning and the spring, try a different magazine.

Remove the barrel and turn it muzzle-down. Drop one of your loaded rounds into the chamber. If it doesn't fall all the way into the chamber, you've found your problem: Either the chamber is dirty or your ammo is oversize. (The latter is a common problem with handloads.)

Old, I sure have no problems with reloads. Practically everything I shoot is reloads. That said, wife bought a handgun about a year ago. Sales personnel were very definite that she should never shoot reloads in ANYTHING. They have an in store range, and forbid reloads... Apparently they have had some bad experiences. And claim manufactures don't endorse reloads. Note that there's a magazine of reloads in the gun right now! That said, we are extremely careful with reloading, and are very confident they will fit/work, and are engineered for the particular arm. (Something the big loader/manufacturers can't do.)
