I recently bought a used second gen G19. I felt that the trigger felt somewhat harder than I remembered when shooting other glocks. So, this evening, I thought I would try to dissasemble and try the .25 trigger job to see if that made any difference.

I printed out every reference I could find on dissassembly and reassembly of the glock (and looked at a couple video's on youtube) and went to work.

I got it apart OK, and when I took apart the trigger assembly, what did I find: A NY trigger spring. Aha, that explains alot.

Looks like I'll be ordering the "regular" glock trigger spring.

FWIW, the dissasembly and reassembly is actually pretty straightforward.

I would think a NY trigger spring would show up by just pulling the trigger. The trigger pull is very different.
I'm not all that experienced with glocks, or even pistols in general. I had rented a bunch of pistols when making my decision, and first bought an XD9. Then, after shooting a friends g19 some more, I decided I wanted the G19. When I bought mine, I noticed right away that the trigger was much harder than I remembered. I wondered if it had been changed, and the detail strip confirmed it.

I did the 25cent trigger job on my glock 35 and used gun juice on the same points.
Then replace my current 3.5 connector with a Ghost Rocket and my buddy who shoots
STI"s told me he was jealous, It was the best he ever pulled.

FYI, NY#1 and 3.5 # connector are a real nice set up.
:supergrin:

It could have been worse as you might have found where someone really altered it, and couldn't get it back right so they sold the gun.

Some people like the NY spring, but a heavier trigger pull isn't nessasary.

It would be easy and relatively cheap to put it back to stock.
As long as the price was good I wouldn't have minded.

A friend had a similar thing happen but with a gun {a G22} bought used represented as a "Factory rebuilt Police turn-in". Besides the pistol being filthy and grossly under-lubed {he'd had it for quite awhile!} offered to "go thru" it for him as he's not very "mechanically inclined", r/r worn parts and do a true trigger-job, etc.
Well, speaking of trigger springs, it sure did not have an OEM Glock one in it, the connector trig-bar nose interface was so galled from lack of proper lubrication it was almost scarred/gouged enough to be useless! Managed to clean, file and stone the T-Bar up enough so that it worked reasonably well with a new 3.5 OEM connector and r/r'd all of the springs in the gun with good Wolff ones, sans the recoil assembly. The "spacer sleeve" on the striker had worn into the side of the strikers "tooth" so that along with the spring-cups was replaced. {should have replaced the channel liner but he was to cheap to pay for same to be done!
He has a markedly better gun now with a much smoother trigger-pull from a good amount of deburring & free polishing! Friend never did get around to paying me for the parts, either! :upeyes:

When I bought my used Gen 2 G23, it was a police trade in. I felt the same thing...hadn't handled a Glock in a while, but didn't remember the trigger feeling that way. Then I noticed the trigger wasn't resetting either. I took it over to Glock and the armorer replaced all the internals. Turns out it had a NY1 spring in it and the spring had broken out of the plastic. I had him put the stock spring back in it and after the upgrades, it felt just like I remembered.

He also detail stripped it, cleaned the firing pin channel, replaced the extractor with the LCI version, and basically gave it back to me with the only original internal part being the firing pin.
