Looking for opinions on the RTF2.
Do you like it?
Do you hate it?
LOVE IT!!! Helps keep the handles smoothed down when IWB. Need a shave? Rub gently on face and it will take the hair down to the follicle. Callused hands will be smoothed down to the dermis. Use to cut trees down and hollow out to make a canoe. Feels like it imprints into your skin and does not feel slippery like other polymer guns. A few of the reasons why you never leave home without one. Good luck and stay safe.
Hated mine! Rough on the hands when shooting and rubbed my side raw while carrying IWB. Lots of folks will tell you to wear a undershirt but Kansas can get hot as hell and that's not always an option.
If you don't make a living with your hands, you'll probably hate it. I love all of mine.
More like love.
Love mine. But have to admit if you the pound out 200+ round at a time you'll not like it long.
Sent an iPhone 4s sitting next to a Glock 17 loaded with 19 round of +P+ ammo.
I consider the RTF2 to be the stickiest frame ever. Love the stickiness
Love the RTF
Love the RTF
What does RTF stand for?
Now I remember - rough-textured frame, right?
Wish all of mine were RTF.
Love love love it on a 19, 17 and 21
I was supposed to buy a 17RTF2 but when I went to the gun show, I held the Gen4 and fell in love. It seems like the perfect step down from the RTF2. The RTF2 was too gritty in my opinion. I hear it tears apart shirts, hands, and basically anything it comes in contact with. Try holding both before you decide.
Put me down for 'love it.'
RTF - Really Tacticool Feature.
Love my RTF 2, never slips in the hand no matter the conditions,carry it daily.
Then again I love my 2002 RTF but find I use it mainly as a range gun.
This is just one man's opinion but of all of Glocks RTF's the RTF 2 has to be the best,with the Gen 4 a close second. SJ 40
Love it, IMHO the RTF2 guns are the best models Glock has ever put out.
Contrary to Internet myth, the RTF2 texture does not destroy anything and everything it comes in contact with. It starts out pretty sharp when new, yeah, but it wears-in quickly from handling and carry to where it's about perfect.
Opinions from those who don't like it speaking to how rough it is (from what I've read) can vary from: "it's like holding barbed-wire" to "it destroyed, maimed and bloodied my hands". It's probably safe to say that if you've ever felt a Glock that's had some skateboard-tape applied, then that's pretty close, except the RTF2 is actually a little less overtly abrasive than skate-tape and a lot of the grip comes from tightening one's grip on the pistols. People who feel as though skateboard-tape added to pistol grips feels like rabid piranha attacking their hands should probably pass on it.
I wear one IWB often without an undershirt and find it to be fine, it's A LOT less abrasive than aggressive G10 1911 grips, but I'd be lying if I said it's not rougher on the skin (no pain, no gain as they say)... I'd rather have the WAY better grip all of the time with a little bit of discomfort now and then, than no discomfort with a grip that feels like a slippery bar of soap compared to the RTF2.
Edit/P.S.: judging from what OD Glocks have been going for, if more Glock owners cared about actual improved features more than they seem to care about tacti-cool colors, then the RTF guns should be going for around $700ish by now, get 'em while you can before guys come to their senses...
Love the rtf2 frame, I would sell my 26 gen4 if they made a 26 with the rtf2 frame.
I find the gen4 frame to be very uncomfortable and sharp/rough. the rtf2 frame doesn't feel like I'm grabbing a brick full of dull plastic nails like a gen 4. the rtf2 just sticks to my hand and doesn't feel sharp, too me.
Love the 23 I picked up last month and will buy the next one I see on site.
I love my RTF 2 G17. To me it feels even better than the Gen 4's I own. It may be a bit rough without an undershirt for some people but I have never had a problem. It doesn't tear up my clothes like others have complained about either. I really wish they still offered this grip texture, I feel it is the best grip option Glock has ever come up with.
