Slide cocking serrations are slippery

1689 38
I have a Standard Manufacuring case colored pistol and like the aesthetics very much. Decent shooter as well. Problem is I cant get a good purchase on the rear cocking serrations. There are none up front. There seems to be some kind of overall coatong on this pistol that makes it slippery.
Is there anything that can be done about this? Forget sending it in for inspection, the customer service is a joke over there. Thanks Forum.

I have decided to lock back the slide on an empty pistol, insert a full magazine and drop the slide stop. Messing with it isn’t worth it really.
I am curious to see if any other owners concur with my assessment of the factory serrations…..

Your 1911 is a work of art. One option is to have two slides, one to live in the safe and the other for the range.
Better yet, get another 1911 built for the range.
Yeah,,, I don't do safe queens though...

If your problem is racking the slide on the first round only, you might try starting with the magazine out. Pull the slide back and engage the slide stop, insert the loaded magazine until it is seated, and then pull the slide back and let go like when you are reloading.
