Nothing seems to be worn out or beat up
Less than 1k rounds
Springfield Government GI


firing pin retainer is slipping down and catching the hammer at the end of the slide stroke, weak firing pin spring? Thoughts?

The firing pin stop should not be doing that. It's not fitted right (way too loose) and, or the firing pin spring is way too light. At 1K rds. I think I would send it back and tell them to put a correct stop on it. And test fire it before it's sent back.

definitely too loose, but out of spec I suspect as well, like the hole in the FPS is too big. I've seen some pretty loosely fit fps and they not slip down like that. I'd say the hole is out of spec in the stop as well. Def Call Springfield they will take care of it. Maybe the firing pin slot is out of spec on the slide as well. Definitely just send it back, you could have a slide that got mis-cut back there.
