    Something to improve even further: have you tried a heavy treatment of Froglube or Seal 1? I've noticed on several guns (most notably pocket guns) that it makes them a lot easier to work.

    Small patch of grip tape on the rear sides of the slide. It makes 18 pounds feel like 6. File the sharpness off of the tape. It is too aggressive and sharp as it comes.

    I was thinking about something like that. Now it really isn't that bad anymore. But still definitely heavier pull than most.
