You could try to swap springs, especially if it’s old, but this would be more of polishing it up to me. If it were me I would first polish up the rails and then I would clean and lubricate it. Some go to extremes with fire lapping but I just use a Dremel. Shouldn’t be an issue then. I’ve seen many guns do what your saying and rarely is it the main spring, it’s typically needing to be worn in or lubricated. You can speed that up with a polish and then just make sure it’s lubricated. Personally I use oil to clean it up and some firearm grease on the rails. I know that many will say just go oil, which I think is fine but I was always taught if it slide use some grease, if it rotates use oil. If it is old or has many rounds down it then I would swap the spring as that will keep it from malfunctioning or damaging itself. You can check with tn Steyr but I think it’s #19 spring.
