    The rtf2 glocks had a very aggressive texctured grip. Did these also have gen3 guts? And did anyone here find the grip too aggressive ?

    I had a gen 3 rtf2 23. Personally I hated it. I carry iwb in a supertuck. If I didn't wear an undershirt it would rub me raw. With the Kansas summer heat an extra layer doesn't help matters much!

    It was pretty rough on my hands when I shot it as well, I eventually traded it for a 19C and couldn't be happier! Not only do I have the standard frame, I also have a 9mm which I shoot much much better!

    The Glock rtf2's are identical to the Gen3's with the exception of the frame texture and the "gilled" serrations in some of the slides.

    All of the internals are standard Gen3.

    I liked the RTF2 but will say they were too aggressive, a few of my shirts with holes will agree with me. The grip was good and in some was better than the original Gen 3 grip. The RTF2 was basically a Gen 3 with a more aggressive texturing.

    I love mine and prefer it over my Gen4 pistol. I sanded down the grip a bit to save my skin and shirt and all is well. The RT2 grip is great when your hand gets slick.

    Also, the frame on an RTF2 is similar to a Gen4 glock. It is 2mm shorter from front to back, like a Gen4 without backstraps. Sounds perfect to me.

    Of coarse they do.....they are Gen3 guns.

    It's a GREAT grip for shooting, but hard on the love handles if you try to carry it.

    One of my carry guns is a G22RTF. I like the grip texture better then any I have tried.
    Carrying it does not bother me but I believe I am one of the few who really like it. :supergrin:

    :thumbsup: Me too! In fact I'm wearing a G-19(RTF2) right now; and I'll be using it at the range later on today. The frame has the best, 'purchase' of any Glock I've ever held. Maybe if I wore it in an IWB holster it might be rough on my clothes; but, I use two OTB Blackhawk holsters: One polymer SERPA, and the other Cordura nylon.

    I love the way the grip, and especially the thumb indents, mold to the shooter's hand. I recently installed a Pachmayr, 'Tactical Grip Glove'. (Because it's mainly the thumb indents that I need textured.) The only thing I find odd about RTF2 pistols is that somebody at Glock wasn't thinking and chose aesthetics over functionality. What do I mean? I mean the slide scallops are backwards! (Think about it.)

    Nope.

    Look at a good set of off-road tires... If the serrations were turned around the other way then one's thumb and fingers would slide from more contact to less contact, the way they're oriented puts the smallest area of serration at the front and as one's fingers move over them they just get increased contact area (more of the cut-out to bite into). It might seem counterintuitive, but it's a solidly correct ergonomic-design decision to have made them the way they are if the most grip possible was the intended goal.

    IMO the RTF2's are the highest evolution of the Glock design to date.

    I love my G17 RTF. I'm always looking out for a G19 or another G17 without gills.

    Absolutely correct on all accounts IMO. Tires are a good analogy. Pure gold there!

    Come on! That's nonsense. It's a gun not a tire for Pete's sake!

    (I know several RTF2 owners who don't like these reversed scallops; and, perhaps, when you get a little bit older you won't like them either.)

    Agreed. The grip texturing is perfect.
