I dont see why they wouldnt work in the PC shield`s, same assembly in both guns.
I have the standard Shield so it should work. Thanks.

Sorry, but I won't sink $$$$$$$$$$$$ in to a $400 firearm. If I don't like it stock, I'll buy another firearm.

Have you tried using the "push" method.
Use your weak hand to grasp the slide and your strong hand to PUSH the firearm forward.
Personally I have no issue with the stiffness of the spring on my shields (40 and 45) and I wouldnt want any thing "lighter".

My 110 lb x-wife is able to easily rack her shield which is also a 40.

I find it unusual for the slide to be so hard to rack after over 1,000 rounds when I see other people with Shields that are not that hard to rack. Maybe I need to eat some Texas steaks so I can do it as easy as your 110lbs x-wife.

No need for steak. But maybe try it.
They are inherently stiff due to short barrel length in which to catch and slow the slide down.

But yeah NJ folks tend to be a little under muscled.

So when the tires on your car wear out you go back to the dealer and buy the factory OEM tires for it?

[QUOTE=MWalden;481642]So when the tires on your car wear out you go back to the dealer and buy the factory OEM tires for it?[/QUOTE Usually not, because they usually put the cheapest tires on that they can contract out. If your planning on keeping your firearm for ever, go crazy. If you ever want to sell it, you'll never get your money back.

True, but unless its an old Colt or S&W of many years gone by you wont recover near your money back anyway. No plastic fantastic pistol carries much resale value.

Absolutely no argument there...
these plastic pistols remind me of a BIC lighter... use it up, go buy another one.
