ok, sorry i am late to this party.

i have the new Canik METE SFx, and here is what i have done to help with the take down tabs....(they are a bit hard, but not that awfully bad)

pull back the slide about half way to the tab....then pull down the tabs, then pull the trigger, till it clicks/ too, the slide does not have to slide all the way forward to remove, only a partial forward till you "see" the slide openings, and it lifts off the frame


then you see that slide stop in the block? put a drop in the front of it, and to the rear of the "button"


next, you see how the right side tab "seems" to be rubbing on the frame? put a drop ONLY at this tab, between the frame and the tab.


this is what i do at each cleaning, i suspect that "in time", the take down tabs will "loosen up"

otherwise, it is really not that bad for a new gun.

yes, they will be. i do not have the same number of rounds as the o/p does, i only have about 200 rounds so far

my best guess is that like anything else, with time, things will loosen up a bit.
