I had this same problem. Clipping coils doesn’t really work because then the plunger tube will no longer be attached to the sprIng. I tried it. It’ll just kinda float and can bind up if it’s not attached. 


I also tried putting like a radius/relief cut on the plunger where it contacts the safety. Clipping coils helped a lot more then this did. 


But overall the fix was a new softer spring. I wish I could tell you which brand is softer, but my gunsmith did this for me.  You could probably find a reduced power sprIng or something if you searched google.
