A few things I did to my new gun (which I have not fired yet).
Cocking/racking the slide is super heavy. I strongly doubt the 22 recoil is strong enough to cycle it. I stripped it and modified the cocking ramp profile with a pile and sanded it after. It now cycles with less than half the original effort but still stiffer than my XDM-40. Hopefully the hammer springs become softer with some use. I am storing it now cocked also hoping it will help.
The stiff cocking plus the sharp edges of the slide gave me some nasty cuts on my fingers. I sanded the corners on (rear) 1/2 part of the slide. Re-blued it after and it is so much nicer now.
Trigger is very crisp and nice, it is surprisingly much better than the XDM. Grip also feel much better to me, probably because it is slimmer.
I haven't fired this yet but I am so loving this pistol already (my XDM is probably getting jealous now
