    i would in a heartbeat. Gills would also be nice but I’d like them turned around.

    Put me down for at least a 48. I’d sell other guns to preorder one.

    Some will cry that the texture hurts their tummy skin.

    Absolutely, the RTF2 frame is my favorite. One of the reasons I passed over the Vickers G43 and bought a blue label 43. If the Vickers had the RTF2 frame it would have been worth a look; without the RTF2 for me it brought nothing to the table. I think I'd opt for the 48 also.

    Not a fan of that texture, so I’d pass.

    make it a poll and it will be easier to vote. If the price tag is the same maybe I'll consider it.

    I don't know if the Decal Grip is out yet for the 43/48.
    I prefer this over others, in the Rubber finish.
    The Skateboard finish is a little rough on my Love Handles.
    If you're looking to get a little thicker put a Pachmeyer Grip
    Glove over the Decal grip.

    I’d love to see those in an RTF2 frame. Maybe a summer special for 2020.

    40BEF559-03F4-4AE5-BEFB-076FB7580BDC.jpeg I was able to get a better grip on my 43 using Talon rubber. But then I added skateboard tape on the heel of the back strap to get the firmer grip I was looking for. Not a very elegant solution.

    The RTF2 finish was Glock’s best effort IMHO. It’s as aggressive as anyone could ask for, and easy it is easy to make less aggressive by simply knocking off the tips of the polymids as and where desired. What’s not to like?

    From what I understand it wore down more easily.

    I did hear the texture tended to wear on the outside panel for those who open-carried OWB like LEOs. But I never had that issue with concealed carry and wouldn’t be as concerned with worn side panels so long as I could get a good grip on the front and back strap.

    No real need to debate this as I suspect Glock won’t make this dream come true unless it’s desired by the LE or Military market. But I can wish...........

    I have one of the G22 RTF2 pistols from an LE trade-in, and love it. I'd gladly go for a G23 in the same setup, but don't care for the 43/44/45 generations, as my older Glocks will get the jobs done.

    I've seen reports from users that the texture wears down from shooting a lot. At any rate, there's a reason RTF2 was discontinued (with the exception of special requests) and RTF3 created.
