I remedied these issues by purchasing RA-TECH's CNC Steel slide and barrel set directly from their Taiwan store.
Installation took less than 20 mins with the most time consuming part being the removal of the nozzle from the slide.
Here it is everything installed with the HKParts.NET's Picatinny Rail Adapter:

The slide finish has the look and feel of the earlier models of MK23 and Mark 23s that have the salt water resistant treatments requested by the Navy SEALs.
Here are some pictures with the MOD-0 package from Tokyo Marui:
HOLSTER: This is a WILCOX replica sold by Redwolf Airsoft. It holds the pistol nicely WITH and WITHOUT the LAM AND the suppressor installed via retention straps and cutt-away opening for suppressor. Comes with rention pouches for two spare magazines as well as the suppressor.
The slide is approximately 360g, which is roughly 2.5x heavier than the stock slide. Cycling rate does that a little bit of a hit but the 150% recoil spring does remedy that a bit and the shooting impulse is very good, would be fantastic if CO2 magazines are released for it the same way the KSC CO2 magazines helped out the Glocks with steel slides. Average velocity wasn't affected too much as the gun clocks in at a steady range of 345-360 FPS using .25 Airsoft Elite BBs with Hopup dialed in at 30% engaged. Overall a very nice bit of a kit to make this a beastly gun.
