    The slides on those Glocks look pretty worn down.

    See http://glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1332080 to see real confusion.

    Lots of people (evidently even some at Glock talk in shorthand, referring to the RTF2 models as "RTF", but that doesn't make it correct. This was not too confusing when there was only the Gen3 RTF (not very "R") and the Gen3 RTF2 -- people understood what was meant. However, now that we have RTF3, the shorthand doesn't work so well.

    Yes it is. When the Gen 3 was initially introduced, Glock called it the RTF due to having a rougher textured grip than previous models. It has since been referred to as just the "Gen 3".
    When the new rtf model came out it was called "rtf2", with regular AND fish gill slide serrations, now commonly referred to as just rtf, that's why people are confused. The Gen4 is actually the "rtf3".
