Have an issue with one of my Hi-Powers. Very hard to move slide back due to hammer spring being too stiff/hard.
Anyone familiar with a good, knowledgeable smith in the Houston area?

There are a collosal number of absolute clowns running around that area breaking people’s guns for a fee.
Given that, I would bet Ed Vandenberg in pearland is your best best.
Changing the mainspring on a hi power is not a great idea. The BHP design has a very light slide, and the mainspring weight is integral to the unlocking process and keep the slide velocity correct in recoil. Changing it is not a matter of just checking primer indents and moving along. Hi Powers with lightened mainsprings will round their locking lugs faster than the stock spring, and that can go pretty fast as it is.
If you do want to change it, it isn’t hard, just make sure you have a jig, loyal assistant or a strategic piece of twine to hold the hammer back while you reinstall the sear.

I agree; Ed is hard to beat.

He's here in Phoenix, but the mod/s he made really impressed me. No need to cock the hammer just to cycle your slide...

all around good guy!
I would look up Eddie Jimenea, he worked on a Para-Ordnance .45 for me and also a friends pistol. Top notch work.
Is this a new to you Hi Power, or something that has changed in a gun you already have and are used to?
If new, the best no-cost approach is to cock the hammer first, and pull the slide back.
Also, is this a 9mm or .40S&W hi power?
I don't have any suggestions on people, but have some knowledge of the system.
