I have put over 800 rounds through my shield.
The spring is still very stiff.
My wife cannot rack the slide

New here. The wife had a hard time racking her shield. After over 1200 rds in the gun it was not any better. So I got a backup spring from SPEED SHOOTER SPEC and took the old spring out and cut 2 coils out of the flat spring. What a change, she loves her gun. She put 150 rds through it tonight and it worked flawless. She even said the recoil seems softer. What ever works to get her gun back in her hands and shooting.

I left mine coked for 30 days , didn't helped. I have 200 rounds through it. Maybe it will get better after 500 rounds.. Love the gun otherwise.

I replaced my factory recoil rod & spring with a EFK Firedragon dual recoil rod and spring. A bit smoother...just my take. It worked for me.

Do you have a link to the RSA you bought, I can't find it on their website, I'd like to take a look at it.

Tried a lot of pistols and ended up with an M&P 9c, still hurt but worked. Hands are much improved now not like pre autoimmune but tolerable. A friend has a .40 Shield and I found the slide stiff, I figured it was because it was a .40 and the 9 would be easier. Not so I guess. See if you can help your wife work through this, try lots of guns. There should be something out there that works for her. It is really hard to believe how much this stuff can hurt if you have not experienced it.
Try the Walther PPC it has a user friendly slide.

Slide hard to rack.

I meant to say to try the Walther CCP with the delayed blowback system. It has a lighter spring tension.

Wife and I both have Shield's and she does complain how hard it is to rack. Ordered a RSA from Stainless Steel Rods so will see how that works out for her.
