TIght focusing ring on 135mm f2.8 AI

I just purchased a Nikon 135mm f2.8 AI lens in excellent cosmetic and optical condition. However, I note that the focusing ring is really stiff compared to similar lenses I own, such as the 105mm f2.5.

Can anyone share, first, is this normal for this lens, and second, if not, so you see any reason to be concerned. I have a 14 day return period.  Thanks in advance for any advice.

Don
