I recently acquired a Glock 19 Gen 2 in a trade. I noticed that the trigger was much stiffer than my other two Gen3 Glock 19 triggers. The gun seems to have been used very little.
Was the Gen2 known to have a stiffer trigger than subsequent models? I have never done any trigger work on Glocks. Assuming that it's just a fact that Gen2s are different, it it just a matter of changing a spring or does something more need to be done to make it feel more like a Gen 3? (That is the trigger I am used to and practice with.)

If it doesn't have the NY T-Spring, and it doesn't have the plus connector, you might want to verify that the trigger bar is correct. The Pre-EH Serial# trigger bar is correct for most or maybe all Gen 2's.
If you go to Midway to order a TBar, you'll see Pre-EH Serial Number, Grooved Trigger for the Glock 19. And you'll see Glock 19 Trigger bars. The latter won't work properly in the Gen 2.
If, say, the previous owner ordered a Glock 17 smooth trigger to install in the G19 and didn't order the Pre EH serial# trigger bar, that would cause issues.

My Dept. required the + trigger bar. That gave our Gen 2's a 8 to 8 1/2 pound trigger pull. Upon retirement I replaced the original trigger bars.

a drop of oil in there and shoot some more may help, one of mine was like you described and the oil and shooting help a lot.

Ordered a "standard" factory connector and spring. I just prefer to have all my Glocks be the standard 5 or so pounds, both because all my practice is on that type trigger and because that's the way it comes. That little voice in my head keeps saying if it ain't "broke" (in other words, ain't non-standard and is ain't in safe) don't fix it.

if it was a police trade in it might well have a NY trigger spring in it.
I got a NY1 spring with a minus connector in a G34 it's a good setup. snappy reset, not quiet as light as a stock spring but feels a bit crisper too me.
I put it in the G34 because it comes with the minus connector and I found it too light to carry. The NY1 spring was cheaper at 4 bucks than a different connector and increased pull weight about 1.5 lbs.

My first guess would be that the previous owner installed a New York trigger spring and lived with (may have preferred the "safer") approximately 8# pull. If that's it the remedy would be to either go back to an original coil spring or switch out to a "minus" connector. Either way is an easy fix.
