It could be you need a lighter recoil spring but I'd try really lubing the rails well and see if that helps. It will also probably get better after it's been shot and had around 500 rounds put through it.
I have a S&W Model 41 I bought recently used and it looked to be clean and in good shape. Well on the first visit to the range it shot poorly and had several FTF with Remington bulk Gold HP ammo. I took it home and cleaned and lubed the gun and on the next range visit it ate everything including the Remington Gold HP ammo.
