Glock literature, prototype Rough Grip Texture survey

I was cleaning out some boxes in storage, found this really random Glock item, figured someone should see it before it's buried away for another decade... :)


As you Glock history pros know, in 2009, the Glock 22 RTF2 (Rough Textured Frame 2) (chambered in .40 S&W) was introduced at SHOT Show. But a couple years before that, in Europe, Glock did a survey shootout between a few different texture pattens to see which was going to be best received.

I was at an arms expo in either Germany or France (can't recall which I got this at). In Glock's booth at the trade show, they had a little display set up with a few different frame textures. You were supposed to handle them, and fill out this little survey card and drop it in a box. The RTF3 was much rougher, as in cut-your-hand skateboard-tape agressive. (Somewhere I have the larger brochure showing line drawings of the different RFT prototype variants, I have posted a photo of my copy of that tearsheet before somewhere on the web.) Edit to add: This one:



Anyway, thought y'all might get a kick out of seeing the market research piece, along with some Glock Party memorabilia and such.

I have two G23 RTF 2's along with other Gen 3's/4's and I prefer grip on the RTF2's although one is a safe queen as it's a "C". I don't prefer the RTF2 grip when carrying IWB and only a tee shirt to cover it - lol.....

I highly doubt any collector has the depth to their collection as sniper does.
‘I can appreciate his effort to get at least one of everything Glock has produced.

He who has the most, right? :)
