The misfires/light strikes could be from the striker sleeve binding the striker. The screw that holds the sleeve to the bolt..leave it on the loose side, then Blue locktite the screw.

If you cock/ de-cock your bolt by hand and observe you'll see what i mean..tighten it / work it and then loosen it/ work it.

I don't see the springs being the problem..have you polished or stoned anything in the trigger /sear area?

Was your new striker just like your other..did you compare..was it in fact worn?
