Lock up too tight??




Hello, I got a new SA loaded in .40 and there is some resistance when the barrel lugs lock up. In other words, it's not 100" smooth like my others. IF I let the slide go forward very slowly riding it with my hand, the spring pressure alone is not quite enough to move the slide all the way forward. It stops at the point the barrel should engage the lugs into the frame. You can't tell this when I move the slide quickly or semi quickly by hand and functions perfect when firing. I assume it's just tight and needs broke in.
What's the scoop?

Thanks ahead of time.

Call Springfield just be on the safe side, prepare to shoot multi-hundred rounds for break in and re-assess. Just my 2 cents anyways.

Normal and desired for a well fitted 1911. Springfield's gonna laff at ya.
Lots of lube and 500 rounds should fix everything. Riding the slide home doesn't prove anything.
