To those who keep advising the OP to cock the hammer first, he said back in post 1 that he had already used that technique, but was still having trouble with the recoil spring.

When I cock it into single action mode I can work the slide, and after much repetition, I'm finally able to move the slide from de-cock but haven't worked it back fully yet.
In a later post, he said he had shifted from a thumb and forefinger slingshot to an overhand punch, and can now rack the slide without any need to cock the hammer.

The Cornered Cat info page really helped with my technique. I'm doing an over hand grip in the "punch" motion.
