If I were you I would NOT attempt to customize your pistol. If you want to release a jam just pullback on the slide. I think that bolting anything heavier to your slide is just going to cause more jams due to the heavier wieght. However, if your a stubborn person like me and have already made your mind up then I highly recommend that you DO NOT lighten the slide or take any metal off of the slide, I recommend you get a lighter less stiff spring. DO NOT cut the spring you currently have to make it shorter. but if a custimization is in place then get a lighter spring. With this said, I am not responsible for the actions occured, I do not think customizing a perfectly good pistol is a good idea. lol
