Glock Releases New Rough-Textured-Frame Pistols: G19 RTF2 and G23 RTF2

SMYRNA, Ga. -- At the National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW) Meeting/Expo, Glock released its two newest pistols: The Model 19 in 9x19 and the G23 in .40 S&W.

The G19 RTF2 and the G23 RTF2 join the G17 and the G22 as pistol models offered with the new optional Rough Textured Frame (RTF2).

Glock was incorporated in 1985 and employs more than 180 at its United States headquarters in Smyrna, Georgia.

The RTF2 finish was developed after direct feedback from the United States Special Operations community. The newly designed frame incorporates hundred of "polymids," or miniature spikes on the front, rear, and sides of the grip resulting in a definite increase in traction.
