GLOCK, Inc. 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, Inc. released its two newest pistols. The GLOCK Model 19 in 9×19 and the G23 in .40 caliber are now offered with the optional Rough Textured Frame (RTF2).
The G19 RTF2 and the G23 RTF2 join the G17 and the G22 as pistol models offered with the new textured grip.
The NASGW is comprised of wholesalers, manufacturers, and independent sales reps – both national and international – all of whom are primarily involved with hunting and shooting sports, equipment and accessories. The NASGW Meeting/Expo provides an unmatched educational, marketing and communications opportunity for the hunting and shooting sports wholesaler, manufacturer and sales professional.
The RTF2 finish was developed after direct feedback from the United States Special Operations community. There are many instances where the environment offers difficult to manage wet and humid conditions. In order to continue providing cutting edge solutions, GLOCK developed the RTF2. 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.
“GLOCK has heard its valued customers. GLOCK knows it must continue to evolve in order to remain relevant in future markets. These new pistols demonstrate that fact,” commented GLOCK, Inc. Vice President Josh Dorsey. “Additionally, GLOCK will introduce the “next generation” of GLOCK Pistols incorporating our customer’s demands at the upcoming SHOT Show; come visit us at the GLOCK booth.”
The G19 and G23 are two of the most popular GLOCK models. The G19 9×19 compact is widely used all over the world. In addition, the G23 in .40 caliber is quite popular with both law enforcement and private individuals as a back up or concealed carry firearm. Adding the RTF2 finish to these compact models increases the options for law abiding individuals and organizations. Along with the new RTF2 finish, each of these GLOCK pistols have the same time tested “Safe Action” system, durable exterior finish, cold hammer forged barrel, durability, reliability, and light weight that GLOCK is famous for.
