Charles Daly 1911 cycling problem

I recently inherited my grandfathers fully built Charles Daly target pistol and went to shoot it yesterday. The gun hasn't been shot in a couple years, and it kept having issues cycling the rounds. It acted like the slide was sticking/dragging when it was all the way back after ejecting a spent shell and it wouldnt return with enough force to load the next roung. It also didnt eject spent shells very. I haven't had a chance to strip it down and inspect so I figured Id ask for some opinions till I can. BTW, we eliminated the ammo being a culprite as my dad has an exact twin to this gun because he and my grandfather built both of theirs just alike and we tried the ammo I was using in his. We also tried putting CLP on the slide and guide rod, but it kept having the problem. The gun was dirty and seemed like it wasnt cleaned after the last time it was shot, but it didnt seem like it was bad enough to cause this. It only properly cycled maybe 2 rounds out of each magazine.

Well if you think it's a slide/spring problem why not try swapping them from one gun to the other and see what happens? Just a thought.
