    I ordered a brand new glock and received it today. I assumed since I ordered an G23 RTF2 that it would have the "cruved" serrated slide but when I opened the box, this is what I got. I called glock to make sure it wasn't a mistake from an Gen 3 but the guy from Glock told me that they moved away from the "curved" serrations since they were really "slippery when wet"

    I have been to many stores in Utah and no where could I find a G23 RTF2 so I ordered one and this is what you see. The date from the factory states "Jan. 20, 2010" so it is only 12 days old.

    What looks better the straight or the curved serrations on the slide?

    I'm a fan of the straight serrations. I was told by a knowledgeable source that the curved serrations were placed backwards anyway. It makes sense to me.

    I like the curved serrations just because they're "different". I'm glad my G22 RTF has them....might be worth something someday. Who knows? I do think the gun looks better without the curved serrations, though.

    They looked cheezy and didn't provide as much grip as the straight serrations.

    I would have felt a little let down myself. I personally preffer the curved seration opposed to the straights. I guess I will be looking for a used RTF2 when I decide to buy one.

    I think there was a pretty big outcry against the curved serrations when they were first shown. They were trying to make them a little racy and it wasn't popular. It doesn't surprise me that they are back to the standby.

    Did you check Impact Guns, their West Valley location? Last I was in there they had some. Come to think of it maybe they weren't G22's.

    Our opinions don't matter. If you bought a Glock for looks then you have other issues. What looks best to you and what do you want?

    *** Did the G23/G19 RTF2s ever come with the curved grooves or was that solely the G22/G17 RTF2s? :dunno: ***

    Well, just checked out a few other posts and saw that they did indeed have curved grooves. A fellow could really start an interesting collection by following all of these new variations.

    They are not backward. Look how a tractor tire works in the sand. They flat out rock. Who care how they look, when it works better.

    This is just what I was told by a Glock rep. Who knows if it was accurate.

    Its odd what companies will do when their consumers complain, some people are affraid of change even if the change is good. Companies fear loosing customers, undeerstandable and they will do what the customer wants more often then not even if they dont agree with the customer.

    I went to Shotshow in Vegas and they had both style serrations guns sitting side by side in display. Somebody posted here, "Glock did you a favor", true statement. I tried them both, then again side by side, I racked both of them and the straight serration are way better functionally than the curved ones, the straight serrations go all the way to the top edge of the slide, the curved ones do not. Even though the curved ones are newer, they were in my opinion a "Fashion statement". They were functionally inferior to the straight ones, once again, in my opinion and my opinion only! I am glad that Glock decided to go the way it went.
