    The G19/G23 RTF2's were formally announced for release back in November 2009. The last RTF2's with crescent serrations look to have been issued March 2011. That makes it a 17 month run for the G19/G23 RTF2 with crescent serrations. With the other models and finishes for that 17 month period, that makes the G19/G23 RTF2 with crescent serrations pretty scarce. :cool:

    The G22 RTF2 was first introduced for release in the 2009 Shot Show (January 2009) then the G17 RTF2 was announced for release May 2009. That makes it a 27 month run for the G22 RTF2 with crescent serrations and an 23 month run for the G17 RTF2 with crescent serrations. :cool:

    The lowest serial known for a gillie RTF2 is MVExxx G22 (test fired 01/2009). The highest serial known for a gillie RTF2 is PEYxxx G17 test fired 03/2011 (PEXxxx G23C had a test fire date of 12/2010). Anybody who has a GLOCK RTF2 Gills/Curved/Crescent slide serrations with lower serial than MVExxx OR higher serial than PEYxxx, please post your: beginning serial, model and test fire date (if known). Just want to get some definitive statistics on what the lowest AND highest serial that can be found for the gillie RTF2s and when they were released by GLOCK Smyrna. :cool: Thanks.

    I am also speculating that 1 of the possible reasons GLOCK discontinued the curved serrations may be because they are more complex and take longer time to machine than the straight serrations.

    Let's get an official shout out from all GT forum members who has this potential collectible GLOCK. I'll start:

    NZNxxx G-23RTF2 - with Crescent serrations. Born on Jan 7, 2010 :cool:
    PARxxx G-19RTF2 - with Crescent serrations. Born on Mar 4, 2010 :cool:

    Posting result summary - we have 514 gillies, so far, broken down as follows:
    G17 - 145
    G19 - 96
    G22 - 138
    G23 - 86
    G22C - 10
    G23C - 39

    Let's keep the list building... :cool:
    updated to include up to JAG06's post

    I have a G22 RTF Shark Gills. Next week I hope to have either a G19 or G23 RTF Shark Gills. The Feel of the RTF2 and the Gills make it a great choice. I wonder how many were really made?

    Bought a G-22RTF late last year. I call it "Boomerrang." You know why. I very much like it.

    I have a 23 with the shark gills. It is my first Glock and I like it better than my dads 19 w straight serrations.

    I have a G17 RTF2 . I love the shark gills and shark skin textured finish. It should have been marketed as the Blacktip version.
