Ruger Old Army mainspring question

Lovely "LIGHT" action would make one suspect lighter that required mainspring.
Another thought, is it random or always the same chamber?
If the same chamber(s) the nipple could be peened and not allowing the cap to fully seat until being struck more than once by the hammer.

I once installed a reduced mainspring in a SRH. Worked fine all summer but introduced misfires as the weather turned cold. . . . Lesson learned.
