New Glock 19 and 23 RTF2

    The 9mm compact Glock 19 and .40 S&W compact Glock 23 will both be offered with the Rough Textured Frame (RTF2). This frame does not replace the standard Glock frame, better known as the 3rd Gen Frame, on the G19 and G23, but will be available as an option.

    From the press release:

    The G19 and G23 are two of the most popular GLOCK models. The G19 9×19 compact is widely used all over the world. In addition, the G23 in .40 caliber is quite popular with both law enforcement and private individuals as a back up or concealed carry firearm. Adding the RTF2 finish to these compact models increases the options for law abiding

    individuals and organizations. Along with the new RTF2 finish, each of these GLOCK pistols have the same time tested “Safe Action” system, durable exterior finish, cold hammer forged barrel, durability, reliability, and light weight that GLOCK is famous for.

    The first RTF2 pistol, the G22 RTF2, was unveiled in January after much speculation. This was followed a few months later by the G17 RTF2.
