Welcome!
The springs may give a little bit but not a lot, and frankly you don't want them to.
Chances are you may get accustomed to them or gain a bit of hand strength.

Sounds like you're concerned about the racking of the slide.
Rack it fast from the beginning, the slide spring gets stronger as it compresses.
Finger off the trigger and rack it fast, creates a type of slide momentum.
I have few tight slides also.
Nice piece
Good luck with the new gun

I'm the oddball when it comes to striker fired handguns. I own them, carry them.
I won't carry a round in the chamber with a cocked firing pin. Safety or No safety.
I will always carry chambered da/sa, 1911s, revolvers.
That's just me.

You are not an oddball PIC, I just prefer not to have combat keyboarders telling me how to carry so I keep it to myself for the most part. My motivation is my damn business.

I feel the same you can rack it pretty quick if needed.If shit goes down and some how he gets your gun.(Should not happen.)he doesn't know there is not one in the pipe that's when you make your move.

My telling , how I carry, may bring out the question ?
( To someone buying their first striker ) WHY. ???

Why doesn't PIC carry a chambered round in a striker fired pistol ?

What's a combat keyboarder, lol ?
Is that Facebook talk,lol.

I like to carry my strikers unchambered in my pocket, NO HOLSTER.
HOLSTER JUST GETS IN THE WAY.
I can fully grip the gun without it looking like a GUN MOVE.
Whattya think about that ? Lol :eek:

That would be the guy who reflexively responds that if you don't carry chambered you have no business carrying.
I don't travel in areas where I need to have a split second reaction that requires instant response. If I did I may reconsider my toolbelt.

I understand, lol,
You're right, some have that opinion, and it's carved in stone.

I can respect that opinion .

Their mindset is for the quickest draw with Grizzly Adams bearing down in less then seven seconds or at least they believe it. Probably factors in to be very true..

There are most times I'm chambered ready to go.

If that's the case, you can't win them all,lol.

I bought an M&P 45 2.0 full size (4.6 in. barrel) a few months ago.

My first handgun though I have a lot of experience with long guns.

I am 6'2 and a fairly lean 275 pounds and have been lifting weights for 15 years. Not to come off the wrong way, but I am very strong for a 57 year old man.

I'm hear to tell ya, that when I first got this pistol it was a struggle to get the slide back. At least in anything like a smooth and consistent manner. I could not believe how hard it felt to pull on that thing.

Turns out it is more technique than strength. Soon it was second nature and now it's laughably easy.

I prefer an overhand grip on the slide. I just grab it and push it back while also pushing the grip in the opposite direction. It's literally effortless.

Being too gentle is the problem. You can't kinda ease it back. You also don't need to slam the slide back into the block ether. Decisive authoritative controlled motion.

Now I chuckle at myself for ever having had a problem with it lol :)
