rough

If you haven’t already seen the movie Law Abiding Citizen, you need to put that on your to do list.

I watched it last night, and noticed that a Glock RTF (Rough Textured Frame) model makes an appearance:


I guess it is as rough as people are saying it is. :P

It’s at 41 seconds into this clip –> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IzpwOti8XrM
***DO NOT WATCH IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY SEEN THE MOVIE, it spoils a good part***

Jamie Foxx and Gerard Butler are both incredible in it.

Whaaaaaaaaaat?

Damn I guess the schools in Chicago are rougher then I thought.

Why 27?  Are all the faculty members going to learn how to use them?

The police model they want is the cream of the Remington 870 crop… Pretty nice aftermarket parts on there too!

As you can probably tell, I have a lot of fun doing photoshops :P

Glock19RTF

Looks like the ever popular Glock 19 (and the less popular Glock 23) compact models are being released with a Rough Textured Frame (RTF2) option. (Source: Glock’s Facebook Page – HERE)

These are preceded by the Glock 22 and the Glock 17 being offered with the RTF2 option.

People seem to love this new aggressive grip, or absolutely hate it.  Common complaints that it is TOO aggressive and actually makes some shooters hands numb, other people that conceal carry have had it ruin shirts.  People also have a lot of good to say about the RTF2 models, most notably that the gun is easier to handle with wet or sweaty hands, and that the new slide serrations (ranted about and pictured below) provide a more positive grip on the slide when needed.  (Source – My excessive reading of releated threads on GlockTalk)

I haven’t shot with one of the RTF models yet, but I have held them numerous times and I really was not overly impressed.

One thing I have to say though, is that the picture Glock released (above) of the Glock 19 RTF2 does LOOK very nice.  Mainly because it does not have the RIDICULOUS looking slide serrations that came on the G22 and G17 RTF models (example pictured below).  I think it would have been possible to keep the vertical lines of the old grip texture, but just angle them in to create the same tactile effect, but maybe Glock wanted to go out on a limb with a radical visual change.

The Glock 23 RTF2 is also pictured in Glock’s press release with the normal “old” style slide serrations.

Maybe the “new” style serrations are available as an option?
