Slide spring tension seems high on new XD

I'm new to hand guns and I just bought a XD 9 mod 2, 4 inch barrel. The tension on the slide seems to be high. I can pull it back, but my wife really has to struggle with it. Is this typical with a new gun? Should I field strip and clean it? Maybe the solution is to put a few hundred rounds through it ;-). The XD 9 we used in our gun safety class (a gun shop rental) was a lot easier to rack the slide. In the meantime, I'm having my wife practice racking the slide each day. Thanks, Bill

Great video

Thanks for the video. My wife and I can rack the slide a lot easier now. As a "newbie", I appreciate the help. Good luck, Bill
