    Within the last hour Davidson's/Gallery of Guns created new listings on their site for multiple RTF2 offerings, including G17 and G22 RTF2 with "curved" (gill) slide serrations. All out of stock right now, and don't even have pictures yet, but they're known to post listings before getting items in stock.

    Could be either old stock that was sitting around somewhere (doubtful), a limited run (probable), or coming back into full production.

    G17 RTF2 with Gills:

    G22 RTF2 with Gills:
    http://www.galleryofguns.com/genie/Default.aspx?item=PT225D203&

    All RTF2 offerings:

    I put myself on the stock watch list for both the G17 and G22 with gills. I'm sure I'm not the only one who would like a NIB RTF2 with gills at "retail/street" price.

    Let's keep an eye on this and see what happens here!

    Edit: They even have some 10-round "compliant" offerings with gills.

    Wow! Very interesting development. 4-letter serial would indicate newly manufactured issue.

    It does say "Tennifer Matte Finish" on the G22 description. Misspelling aside, that would seem to indicate old stock.

    I doubt very seriously that the fish gill slide Glocks will ever be made again and I don't believe those are new stock, but I've certainly been wrong in the past.

    It would be fantastic if Glock made a special run of them again and I would definitely pick up a few more.

    You, me and probably half of the members on this forum would too! If a wholesaler placed an order with Glock for 10k, they would probably sell out in minutes.

    Yes they are doing a summer special with rtf frames with straight serrations and with curved serrations
    These are the models I'm aware of so far
    I imagine they are new

    But really wish they were doing a rtf 19 with curved serrations

    Good info. Where did you locate this? Any indication as to when they will begin to ship?

    Curious as to where you got those UPC's. Very surprised about this.

    Glock has likely taken note that these are hard to find and selling fast. Why would glock not make a run or ten thousand and move them fast

    I am a FFL holder and dealer for several distributors
    That info is from Amchar and they indicate that they will be available in September

    Ok Guys, other than "Gills" being different and hard to find, what make them so special other than looks.?

    Nothing. They were only made for a couple years so the production numbers are minimal. Supply and demand issue here with the gillie glocks. They do look great though and I love my G17 and G19 gillie Glocks.

    They are special if you're into collecting, plus the rtf2 feels awesome to hold and shoot. Hopefully these new releases are Gen4s

    What's the difference in FXD and GNS?
    Also, do you know what's different between, say the first two on the list? Listed as the same but different item numbers.
