mine was pretty stiff also, I left it racked over night for a couple of nights and that helped a little after I put the HBI hand guard on, it really loosened up.  you really have rack it with some force  when it is new though. it should get better with time

Mine has 1000 rounds, just did a trigger job and applied some grease on top of hammer.  It feel much smoother now.

White lithium grease.

Its safe and it works really well. Keep a small tube in your bag and a large tube in your workbench.
