May be a stupid responce but do you have an easyopen or an older hardopen frame?  As you may know some frames are harder to open because of the location of the pivot point of the trigger guard release lever.  If the pivot is above the trigger it should be much easier to open than if the pivot is at the front of the trigger guard.  Just some random thoughts.  It will make a big difference.
