I own the Taurus TCP pocket pistol. The slide is difficult to pull back. Can I change the spring to one with less tension? If so, will a lighter spring change the way the gun operates, other than the slide of course.
I've got an LCP, Ruger's P3AT copy. It's slide is pretty stuff to cycle too. My guess is, that's just the way they are.
Changing the spring might affect reliability. Try it and see. Wolff makes sets for the P3AT and LCP. Perhaps one of them will work.
