Which STI model? It is my understanding that island barrel models need a lighter spring because of the reduced slide mass. 8-9lbs?

Black Nitride v. "Smoked" Nitride ?

Smoked Nitride is Black Nitride that gets “distressed” (sanded down). It is smoother to the touch, assuming the same metal texture before the finish is applied.
