    I can't do pictures but the grip on my gun is very rough with tiny plastic bumps. Even the front finger grips. Almost like a rough grit sand paper. It's different from all the others i've seen. What's the significance of the different texture?

    yes kodiak that's it.
    Anything special or just some additional texture?
    I do really like the way it feels. Almost like a velcro bond between it and my hand.

    What is rtf?

    The RTF2 gripped, Gen3 Glocks were only made for a limited time. Apparently too many people thought they were a bit too abrasive to skin and/or clothing.

    I really like the grip for shooting, but it's a BIT rough to carry against the old love handles...

    Here's my G17:

    RTF2 I looked at my glock box today and saw it printed with the ser. no. and other info. I never put two and two together. I am a little jealous of the gill type slides.
    Thanks

    Some folks have used fine grit sandpaper to blunt the polymids some what,just dulling the points. If you look at the Gen4's they are a larger version of the polymid with the top sharp point missing. SJ 40
