    kimber slide

    Have a kimber raptor ll that has 250 rds down the tube, my problem is the slide is real hard to pull back. change the barrel spring down to a 15 lb. but no difference in pulling the slide back. anyone have any idea what i can do to make it easer? my two other makes of 1911 no problem thanks for some input.

    Shoot it more!

    Really though, it isn't really even broken in until you get around 500-800 rounds thru it. It'll probably loosen up a bit. The length has something to do with it as well. What barrel length do you have? The reason I ask is because the shorter one, like I have, has a captive spring whereas the longer ones, that I haven't seen, may have a guide rod. It sounds like that is what you have because you changed it out. The amount of force required to operate the gun efficiently is there for a reason. I'd consider some hand exersizes. I don't say that to be mean, because after I broke my left wrist, I had a hard time, so I worked on my grip and now it's all good.
