I'm a newby when it comes to the 1911. My question is whether or not there is a way to provide an easy pull to the slide on my 1911 Colt Series 70. When purchased, it had been completely re-blued inside and out, by the Colt Custom Shop. It being my first 1911, I assumed the hard pull was due to the new installed/blued parts or the minor arthritis in my hands. However, when I recently visited my favorite gun shop, I handled a used Kimber Poly Ten, which to my surprise, had the easiest slide pull I have even tried. Also, I found that if I cock the hammer, on my Series 70, before pulling the slide, it helps some. But, I would like to find out if there is something that could be done (replace springs, hammer, etc.) that would make it more like the Kimber slide, and offer an easy slide pull all of the time. Please help! I welcome any suggestions. Thanks from the Bluegrassstate.
