SIG 220 SAO 10mm Hunter. Super difficult to rack slide. Login/Join

Hello SIG Braintrust. I have a couple of 10mm 220's, both are SAO. I have found that my Hunter version is a total bitch to rack the slide. Can I get a lighter spring to make that easier? My other 220 10mm is like a normal 220, unlike the Hunter Beast. Thanks in advance folks!! sigguy (the 1st)

I would remove the slides from both and look at each recoil unit, they're captured spring units.

I suppose you could disassemble the troublesome unit but I wouldn't know where you'd get a different spring to fit the unit.

. I'll try to pulle the slides and look for any differences. Thank you.

Doesn’t sound good. Have you tried swapping the recoil springs between the “beast” and your other 220 10mm, just to rule out any difference due to age / use of the springs?

Will the slide move along the rails easily when you remove the barrel, spring and guide rod?

As was suggested, can you swap the spring
see if that makes a difference

If you remove the barrel, guide rod and spring
does the slide move easily..
