Im wondering if anyone has seen the new glocks in person or held one...wondering what they feel like and how different they are from the 3gen

*SEARCH?*

And, yes, I have held one. The grip feels nice, but I find the new cocking serrations really ugly.

I've held one and the new textured grip is definately nice. I wish they kept the slide serrations the same as the 3rd Gen though. 3rd generation slide on the new frame would be perfect.

+1 on the grip texture
-1 on the cocking serrations

Ammo Bros in Cerritos had them in stock two weeks ago. Haven't been there since then.

Held one, and it had slightly more aggressive checkring/texture for the grip which some would prefer I guess. Just not for me.

And cocking serration didn't seem like an improvement, more like a step backwards in functionality.

Eh, maybe I'm in the minority but I don't mind the serrations. Then again, I'd need to physically handle the gun to really get an opinion on them.

I was at the 2009 SHOT Show, and had a chance to fondle and photograph one of them:

The RTF is not slippery! Yeah!
Big improvement!

So are all Glock models to be like this or only selected models?

It's an option, they're not doing away with the Gen3 frames.

Personally I prefer the RTF2 texture to the Gen3. It fits my hand better (which I don't understand since it's the same size?). The cocking serrations fail though. If I had money to waste I'd get a standard G34 and switch it's slide & parts over to a RTF2 frame. But then, that would be a waste. :o

I had 2 .40's in the RTF we just sold (one to a guy on here) :)

I like them actually and they look good in person and more grippy! :D

I have held them, and really didnt like it....dont know why, but it just didnt feel "right". I dont like the serrations either, personally.

<sigh>

i hear that it is an option at this time. i hope it does not become standard.
