You can also leave the slide locked back a couple of nights at a time to help loosen up the spring. Maybe go with some blazer brass 124gr, that's fairly cheap to get if you shop around online.
Good luck <img src="http://www.waltherforums.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />
locking back the slide won't do anything even if it was locked back for 20 yrs. Compressing a spring does not cause a spring to loosen. Only cycling a spring will do that. That's why you can leave magazines fully loaded for years (rust free) and they will function just fine. Compression causing a spring to lose its "spring" is a myth.

You can believe what you want to, it's a free country.
But in my experience, my new guns rack the slides easier (and some of them have been pretty damned stiff) after a couple of nights of being locked open, rinse and repeat, before their round counts got into the break-in periods.
it's not a matter of belief. This has been scientifically tested and proven many times over. There are dozens of sources you can easily search. But nevertheless have a good day gentlemen.
