I've seen a number of folks say (including some ammo sites) that you should go ahead and replace the springs of the nambu with new springs.

Wondering if I should just go ahead and buy a spring kit now or try it out at the range first?

Curious everyone's thoughts on that?

Thank you

So regarding ammo.... The local shop has some PCI 8mm boxes but the online reviews were mostly negative (i.e. too underpowered). Should I just order from Steinel (realizing it is back ordered) or give the PCI a chance (after replacing the springs?)

Beside new springs, I recommend you also buy a modern made replacement firing pin before you shoot your Nambu. You won't be happy if you break the tip on the original pin after the first few shots.

Get a Wolff spring set. Also, measure your firing pin before ordering one...there are two different lengths.
Thanks -- I'll take it apart tomorrow, take pics and send to Don for the correct replacement pin. In meantime I'll purchase a new spring set. I noticed that when firing it (with snap cap) that instead of a nice crisp click, it felt more like a dull "bluh...." lol. Wondered if it meant a spring of some sort was worn.
