Default I have this Colt sist.27 45cal

I have had this for about 10 years and it shoots great I only paid $200 for it. The slide is very hard to pull back to chamber a round--always has been that way. I have a Remington Rand 1911-a1 and It is not as hard to chamber a round. Is this normal or should I look into getting a lighter spring. I'll post a pic if I can get this camera and computer to co-operate.

All that pistol needs is some TLC. Send it to me, I'll take care of it for you!

Check the rail and frame fit and look for any burrs and other imperfections that might hang up the slide operation. Even a slight bit of rust can create problems.

What do you use to lube the rails? Rails like grease. If that's good and works well, then go to a lighter recoil spring.

After that, if you don't want to fool with it, I'll give you $201. for it.
