Who has GLOCK RTF2 Gills/Curved/Crescent slide serrations?

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.

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.

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. 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
PARxxx G-19RTF2 - with Crescent serrations. Born on Mar 4, 2010

Posting result summary - we have 464 gillies, so far, broken down as follows:
G17 - 133
G19 - 85
G22 - 124
G23 - 83
G22C - 8
G23C - 31

Let's keep the list building...
updated to include up to Yamacrab's post


> GLOCK RTF2 with Gills/Curved/Crescent slide serrations Factoids:
a) G22 - introduced at the 2009 Shot Show with release date of Jan 2009
b) G17 - announced with release date of May 2009
c) G19 & G23 - announced with release date of Nov 2009
d) G23C gillie RTF2s exist
e) G22C gillie RTF2s exist
f) MVExxx - lowest known serial (a G22 model)
g) PEXxxx - highest known serial (a G23 model)
> Notes:
a) All currently manufactured GLOCK RTF2s are now back to the vertical straight serrations

c) G31 RTF2s only have the vertical straight serrations (no gillies are known to exist)
d) G32 RTF2s only have the vertical straight serrations (no gillies are known to exist)
e) GLOCK now ONLY issues RTF2s for Law Enforcement (blue label) and they are NOT for sale directly to the public as red or white label

I have a G22 RTF Shark Gills. Next week I hope to have either a G19 or G23 RTF Shark Gills. The Feel of the RTF2 and the Gills make it a great choice. I wonder how many were really made?

Bought a G-22RTF late last year. I call it "Boomerrang." You know why. I very much like it.

I have a G17 RTF2 . I love the shark gills and shark skin textured finish. It should have been marketed as the Blacktip version.
