I was having problems fully racking the slide and chambering the 1st round because of the stiff recoil spring and shallow serrations. I thought I was losing hand strength. My son suggested I put some "skateboard tape" on the rack.

Two 1/2 inch squares of tape (one on each side) placed right behind the rear serrations solved the problem 100%.
It is now easy to rack, even with a fully loaded mag. NO more chambering issues at all.

So, the problem was not strength or the recoil spring stiffness........it was "grip"

That is interesting to ponder.
When it's all over, I want to hit the ground like a spent shell.
