It sounds like it has a rough surface finish and a borderline hammer spring. You could try taking the grips off and looking at the spring and guide rod. Put a drop of heavy oil at the top of the rod where it meets the hammer and oil the spring. Also watch the spring compress as you pull the hammer back and see if you can identify any rough contact between the spring and guide rod where you feel the rough spot on cocking. It could be a burr or bound spring coil.
