The G19/G23 RTF2's were formally announced for release back in November 2009. The latest RTF2's with crescent serrations look to have been issued June 2010. That makes it a 8 month run so far for the G19/G23 RTF2 with crescent serrations. With the other models and finishes for that 8 month period, that makes the G19/G23 RTF2 with crescent serrations pretty scarce. :cool:

The G22 RTF2 was first introduced for release in the 2009 Shot Show (January 2009) then the G17 RTF2 was announced for release May 2009. That makes it a 18 month run for the G22 RTF2 with crescent serrations and an 14 month run for the G17 RTF2 with crescent serrations. :cool:

The lowest serial known for a gillie RTF2 is MVExxx G22 (test fired 01/2009). The highest serial known for a gillie RTF2 is PEXxxx G23C test fired 12/2010 (PETxxx G23 had a test fire date of 06/2010). Anybody who has a GLOCK RTF2 Gills/Curved/Crescent slide serrations with lower serial than MVExxx OR higher serial than PEXxxx, please post your: beginning serial, model and test fire date (if known). Just want to get some definitive statistics on what the lowest AND highest serial that can be found for the gillie RTF2s and when they were released by GLOCK Smyrna. :cool: Thanks.

I am also speculating that 1 of the possible reasons GLOCK discontinued the curved serrations maybe because they are more complex and take longer time to machine than the straight serrations.

Let's get an official shout out from all GT forum members who has this potential collectible GLOCK. I'll start:

NZNxxx G-23RTF2 - with Crescent serrations. Born on Jan 7, 2010 :cool:
PARxxx G-19RTF2 - with Crescent serrations. Born on Mar 4, 2010 :cool:

Posting result summary - we have 445 gillies, so far, broken down as follows:
G17 - 131
G19 - 84
G22 - 114
G23 - 77
G22C - 8
G23C - 31

Let's keep the list building... :cool:
updated to include up to Loansharkx's post

Just do not want to count undelivered orders (just in case the source fails to deliver). Otherwise, just a post mentioning ownership of a G17, G22, G19 or G23 RTF2 with shark gills is enough.

The thread is just 2 days shy of being a month old and we have a total of 50 gill serrated slides across the 4 models counted. If we assume that we only have 5% of the total counted here, that would come up to 1,000 total across the 4 models issued with the gill serrated slides. :supergrin:

Mine came from a buddy, he got his hands ripped off (exaggeration on his part!) my hands do not sweat, even I had to file the points down a bit, what a grip!

Glock19-NVEXXX Blue box 3 Mags.

Has any one noticed? the crescents are back wards! You get more grip going the opposite way? Unless I am back wards?

Shoots like a dream, carry and IDPA, no malfunctions of any kind, love it!

Has no idea that serrations would be desireable in the future. I knew it looked cool to me, but once they changed back to the straigt cocking serrations, the "gils" look better and I like the feel too!!

I have two Gen 4 Glock 19s, love them, great mods, at last. But my carry every day Glock 19 NVEXXX Glock with Gills!

My hands do not sweat, or feet... Bionic? Who know's.

Out of the box? You would have bled, also your cover Shirt/sweater/jacket, would get hung up. First mod, dremel all right side, looks nice? No, but it does not hang up now, the line under the thumb dimple, right side, had a sharp point, sliced it off. Lightly went around all the sharp points with a fine file, still non slip, best finish ever, but does not hurt now.

TruGlow sights, extended slide release, Pearce Sp? butt plug, trigger bars cut off. In Glock holster, every day!

The funny thing about the Gills, they are cut back-wards! You grip more positively pulling forward.

No big deal, you still can pull the slide back, I carry one, a Glock 19, my problem? not sure if I can call it a problem, my hands and feet do not sweat, so the RTF2 finish is the way for me to go. But it is too rough! Took skin off.
I had to take it down with a file (just enough to still grip well, the side on the outside, I had too dremel, it was pulling the shirt)

Looks like a pro G19 now.

All it took for me to tame my 3 RTF2's was a light sanding with 400 grit sandpaper. I cannot imagine using a file and dremel? Why not just buy a Gen 3?

I have a G17 RTF2 that I use for IDPA. I really like the secure feeling of the grip.

Just curious how much the texture wears down over time. I am hoping it does not change very much. I would be bumming if after a few thousand rounds, the grip changes a lot and becomes too slick.

I do not carry the RTF2, so the only handling is during shooting.

If anyone has a few thousand rounds through their RTF2, I would appreciate feedback on how the texture is holding up.

EDIT: Oh Brianr34, I have quite a few thousand rounds through my gilled G19 RTF2. The texture is definitely smoother than when I first got it, but it is still holding up great. As a matter of fact I just shot it in the pouring rain a few days ago and it was great!

Scored a used LE turn in G22 RTF2 NVXxxx with the fish gills and night sights a few months ago. One of 10 available, so I got to do my own handpick and landed one that is spotless. I think the gills are superior to the straight edge serrations and actually prefer them. Dead balls accurate gun. First round out of the gun was a bullseye at 33 feet.
Looking forward to a little mix and match of the slide with a Gen 4 22 and an OD 22 that I will have in the near future. At least for some photos.
The way the Gen 4 shoulda been IMHO. Woulda been nice to have the new frame grip with the fish gills.

I had bought it already. Carry it every day, NVExxx.

Left the 5 lb connector in, crisp release. TruGlow sights, great. Leaving the rough outside, pulls on shirt, when carrying, the only part that needs to be left alone, the back strap.

On a draw, gun stays still! No slip, which the Gen3 tends to do, the Gen4 main spring? not fixed yet!

...... Has any one noticed? the crescents are backwards! You get more grip going the opposite way? Unless I am backwards?

Shoots like a dream, carry and IDPA, no malfunctions of any kind, love it!


Yeah, until just now, I thought I was the only one who noticed this - Good call! (Someone at the factory must be cross-eyed.) Purchased my 3rd. gen. G-19(RTF2) on Nov. 1st of last year. The witness cartridge envelope is stamped April, 2010. The serial number is, 'PEDxxx'.

Don't really care that the serrations are backwards. I really like the RTF2 finish; so, of course, it's already being changed.

Shoots like a dream! 1,500 rounds through it, so far, all without the slightest hiccup. (Not counting the crappy, 'Zone 3' sights the shady dealer talked me into buying.)

I don't see myself ever owning another 9mm Glock; but, I definitely like this one. Sure glad I didn't fall into the, 'Gen 4 hole' too.

I thought the guy at my local gun shop was just using a sales pitch.
I bought a Model 23 RTF2 with the curved serrations because I thought it looked cool and it was actually cheaper than the Gen 4's I was comparing it to. I wanted a 23 to match my issued 22. The sales guy said he couldn't give me the LEO discount that they normally give but he did throw in an extra mag. I didn't realize what I'd gotten until I stumbled across this thread.
Mine is Model 23, red label with NZP prefix.
I really, REALLY like this pistol.
Ordered a 27 yesterday and seriously considering trying to locate a Model 22 RTF.

Discovered a G23 rtf2 w/gills just days after I bought my G23 "regular" last year. I was bummed b/c I really liked the grip texture--and agree that the gills look really cool/distinctive in a world of millions of regular textures/serrations. I still feel like if I could trade my current 23 for the RTF2, I would instantly.

...Came across another today, and almost bought it. I will DEFINITLEY be getiting another 23 soon, but have been leaning towards the GEN4. So to those of you that have the G23 rtf2 w/ gills--AND a GEN4-which do you like better?

Keep in mind, the gun will be for EDC/lots of range time. Most GEN4 owners claim the dual recoil spring is at least slightly smoother/less snappy, and that the grip is the perfect compromise. Help me decide...

I have a G22 RTF2 with gills and I am loving it so far. The grip is amazing both on the slide and frame. I have had a few strange questions about the gills.
Q-Why would you get that done? A-It came that way! has been a common one.

Date on the envelope is 04/26/10

Only down side I see is the frame texture will wear down faster, but I will wait and see.

looks like I have the most recently made G23C RTF2 with gills. PEX-5xx born on 12-7-10 :tongueout:

You might find this interesting - today I added a G22C RTF2 with gills to my collection. Its SN is PEX 04x with a date of 4-12-10. :cool:

So I got a full frame 22C vs. a compact frame 23C, with the same PEX SN prefix (differing in numbers by ~400) and with a birthdate almost 8 months earlier than yours... sounds like they left yours on the vine too long and they only picked it after it started withering (after it lost 0.5 inches off the barrel and 2 rounds out of the mag). :tongueout:

Sorry I have not gotten back sooner concerning the "ordered" Glock 22 Gen 4 (Jan 2011), just got busy. I received the pistol on 11 February 2011, one week early. Came in a special shipment of Glocks to the dealer. Price was $395.95 plus tax (Military/Law Enforcement special). THE GLOCK DID NOT HAVE GILLS. Serial # RDC XXX . And yes, there is no difference between civilian and LE/MIL. Glocks. The ONLY difference is if you order directly from GLOCK for a LAW ENFORCEMENT / MILITARY bulk shipment and specify "special serial numbers (example ONLY -like Tucson PD would request TPD 001, 002, 003 etc.), otherwise serial numbers are NOT marked Military/Law Enforcement.

Neat.... but you do know that a GEN4 is not an RTF2, right? :tongueout: That's one of the 'new-fangled RTF3' models that was never cool enough to have gills.

03-14-2011, 20:45
Actually, I thought we were talking about the "newer" models of "RTF" BUT no, I did not know that the new Gen 4 was a "RTF3". Thank you for the info.

Now that I have the Gen 4 I have to wait for a manufacturer to produce a "Slug Plug" for it. I have already added the "2 round" extensions to my 6 magazines, thus I am capable of loading 17 rounds in the mag (and 1 in the pipe if you like, I do not). But due to my "old" military training I never fully "top off" a magazine. When it was a 15 I had it loaded with 14, now that it is a 17 I have it loaded with 16. A lot of talk about weaking mag springs etc., for me it is just a "thing" from the past (M-14, original M-16, etc.).

I stumbled upon a LNIB G19 RTF2 w Gills in a Pawn Shop this morning. It appears to have been fired very little - if at all - could pass for new. The spent cartridge was absent from the box but everything else was there. No idea of the "born on" date -- but the serial number is NYB8xx. This one has the Glock adj. rear sight (I'll be changing that) and I got it for $427.

Also, Academy Sports here had the RTF2 G23s with Gills on sale for $479 a couple of weeks ago. I missed the sale, but saw that they still had one in the case. I might see if the manager will still honor the sale price. If so, I may just have to pick one up to keep my new to me G19RTF2 company!

Congratulations on the purchase.

I've been looking for a second one (G19 RTF2 w/Gills) since I got my first one. I bet I've called 50 dealers and sent a ton of emails to individuals/dealers inquiring about one. Found one that was sold by the time the dealer go back to me and one that the guy decided to trade with someone else. Cabelas said they had them and then called back and said they didn't have any left. I even joined some more forums so I would have access to their want ads. Nothing so far. :crying:

I can find the G19 RTF2 but not with the GILLS.

I can't speak for all the gilled RTF2s except for the fact that the 17s came both with or without factory night sights. There was a $50 difference in the price of the G17s (with and without factory NS) at my dealer's shop.

Bachman Pawn & Guns (Dallas, TX) had a bunch of them at the gunshow a few weeks ago. The G17 RTF2 w/gills and regular sights was $449.99 and the G17 RTF2 w/gills with factory night sights was 499.99. They were the only ones that had them with factory night sights. They were also the cheapest. Other dealers had the ones with regular sights for $499 (and some even higher than that)!!

I actually paid $499 for my first G17 RTF2 w/gills because it was the cheapest I could find it. Then I ran across the ones Bachman had and grabbed another one.....$449 was too good to pass up.

I'm going to the gunshow Saturday and am going to see if they still have some at the same price.

At the same gunshow I also found some Glock 19s RTF2 but with vertical slide serrations (can't remember the price). Purchased the "one and only" NIB Glock 19 RTF2 w/gills from a very small dealer (from a small town) that must have had it awhile. He said he had more of them but when he looked he didn't.

Seems as if there are still a lot of the Glock 17 RTF2 w/gills around.

$519.........not terrible in my opinion, only $10 more than the ones I saw, and only one dealer had them.

03-24-2011, 19:04
not a fan of the scallop serrations. if i wanted could i swap to the vert serrated slide?

QB
03-24-2011, 19:12
Well they make the RTF2 with the vertical slide serrations now (some models, supposedly LE only but you know how that goes). Or you can buy the RTF2 lower from Glockmeister or Lone Wolf, can't remember who.

But yes, swapping works fine, at least between the GEN3s. I swapped one of my G17 RTF2 w/gill lowers and put it on my Glock 17C and it works just fine (all are GEN3 guns).

Funny thing about the gills......when they first came out I didn't like or want them, now it's all I want. Go figure!!

I just took delivery of a G22 RTF2 with Gills, factory night sights, and the slide engraved with "Decatur County Sheriff's Office" and badge. From the look of the seal, it appears to be from Decatur County, GA. The price shipped was $390 from a member here -- and the pistol could pass for BNIB -- it even has the copper anti-sieze compound in the slide.

A great deal -- and nice companion to my G19 RTF2 with gills.

What a Great Day on so many different levels! I have located and soon to be the new owner of a G23c RTF2! I should have it by next week! This was supposed to be my CCW present to myself - but since I found it early I 'pulled the trigger' on the purchase. My class is on Saturday.

FWIW: I had a G19c on order with my local dealer for a month and canceled the order. Although not a Glock I am also a new and proud owner of a FNH FNX-9.

I would have loved to have the Glock G19c but ecstatic of finding the G23c RTF2 after having turned a cheek to one at a local gun show (it was gone on my return trip to the vendor!).

Anywho...

I'll let you know about the particulars when I have the firearm in hand.

My own RTF2 is my carry pistol, much rubbed down, as it used to pull on my carry shirt! But it will stay in a holster, that a Gen4 will never sit, till the spring assembly is perfected, as it is not now with the 04 replacement.

The RTF2 is perfect for those amongst us, who's hands do not perspire (ME!)

I'll be picking up mine next week. But, does anyone know if glock discontinued these "gill-shaped" serration rtf2s or is it just another internet rumor? My local shop had lots of Glock 17 RTF2s and the guy at the shop where I purchased mine had told me he hadn't heard anything about the discontinuation of this type of glock and another dude at a different gun shop told me they had. So which is it?

That PER is simply the 3-Alpha Serial Number prefix and there is no 'translation' to that other than your gun happened to be made during that production run. There is a Serial Number survey that provides dates for reference, but the PER is not listed yet. If you will post the necessary info, then you can become part of that survey. :wavey:
