Hi Guys,

Quick question. Are the Glock 21 SF RTF's still in demand? Reason I was asking is because I obtained three of them and they will be coming into my shop this week. Thanks for the insight!

I heard a bunch more were just "released".

I'm not sure about demand though.

I ordered one myself, and as far as demand, yeah I think so down the road when they're no longer made. Current demand depends, because honestly I'm not sure too many are even knowledgeable that the G21sf RTF2 even exists, most RTF2 models are somewhat sought after.

I've been interested in one for a while now, but there are none that I can find nearby to look at. I've been told that the grip is smaller and more comfortable to shoot. I'd like to know the grip measurements as compared to a Standard 21SF. The smaller the better for me.

And no, I'm not switching to a 1911 platform with a single stack cause they're smaller. I already tried that and didn't like it.

They will be in tomorrow and I will probably throw a few up on the classifieds.

Glockmeister still shows them in stock.

Any word on where this latest production run came from and how many were produced or released?

Thanks in advance.

Twogunjay says he has some coming, Ed's Public Safety was advertising some as trade in's recently and I just saw the ad on Glockmeister. It sounds like there are quite a few out there.

Just none around here to look at. I'd buy one today if I could check it out.

There weren't that many released from what I have heard. The gun is a SF model with glock rail and the RTF texture. Honestly, they are very comfortable.

I ordered one for the novelty. I currently have a std G21 and love it as is.

This would even things up...2 1911 based .45s and two Glocks. :supergrin:

Are these from the Arkansas state police batch from a few years back!?

Do you have a serial number prefix that you could
Post?

Picked mine up today, very nice. The date on the case envelope is 5-21-12, serial prefix is PZA. Newer Glocks have the caliber and other marks stamped further back on the barrel, this one is the older style that's marked further forward on the barrel hood.

My other (newer) G21sf has a SAW prefix with the newer stamps on the bbl, but the date on the envelope is earlier than this RTF2. I would say they found a stash of these somewhere since the date on the envelope is recent, but the pistols have to be older than that because of the bbl markings and earlier serial prefix.

Here you go, I put a pair of Ameriglo Pro I-Dot's on there, and an ext. slide stop/release. I'm pleased with it!

Can you do a comparison of the sizes of the 21SF and the 21SF RTF-2?

I'm very curious about the differences. I have money just burning in my hand to get one, but I don't want to just run out and get one and find that it's the same as the 21SF that I already own.

They appear to be the same size. Just rough textured frame.

So these are an old stash- but glock put newer barrels on?

No, they were manufactured 3 weeks ago.

I don't personally think they were manufactured 3 weeks ago. The barrel markings are the older style, which to me, means they were test fired at the factory 3 weeks ago but not made then. My other G21sf was manufactured back in late August 2011 and has the newer style barrel markings. The RTF2 G21sf's have the older style barrel markings and a P series prefix, which means...well I don't know. I'm thinking sometime in 2010 perhaps.

Additionally my G20sf, 23 gen4, and gen3 19 have shinier slides than the RTF2 G21sf not to mention the new barrel markings, and these did truly roll off the line in the last few months.

"SAW***" G21sf = newer style bbl markings made in August 2011
"PZA***" G21sf RTF2 = old style bbl markings, newer test fire date of May 2012 but an earlier serial number prefix. Also note in the Glock serial number project thread there is listed a G21sf (not RTF2) with a "PZB" prefix listed as made in Dec 2010.

That's why I think they're older guns just recently released to the public.

I got to handle one today at the local gunshow. I was really surprised to see it there at the dealers table. It had a price of $529.00 on the tag. It was brand new, not used. I picked it up and fondled it for a few minutes and I was REALLY DISAPPOINTED.

I WAS SHOCKED. It felt bigger in my hands than the 21SF I already own. I was SO GLAD I didn't buy one sight unseen from one of the out of state dealers.

There you go, it's in your head.
It's the SF with the RTF. So, it's the same size. I love the RTF Glocks (have the 17, 19, and 21). They are Glock perfection for me.

I'm so glad you know whats going on in my head more than I do. Do you know me or how and what I feel? Have you read the same articles that I have regarding the 21SF RTF-2? Have you formed the same opinions or conclusions or hopes that I had? Do you have any facts to confirm whats in my head? If not, then what qualifies you to tell me whats in my head?

BY NO MEANS WAS IT BIGGER.....its the same size..just that the finger grooves have more bite wich might have made it feel a little bigger..i think its the best grip texture they ever..im a proud owner of a glock 21sf rtf june of 2010 pre fix is ..PCL
