I've never seen a 19 RTF2 with the fish scales, only the regular serrations, so either they didn't make very many of them or they didn't make any.

I did just get a 17 RTF2 with the scales, so if they did make the 19 with them, you might still be able to dig one up.

I think you guys mean gills not scales & to me they resemble shark gills.

I think the fish gills make the glock look stupid and cheesy.

That's fine with me. The glock dosent win any beauty contests anyways. Wish my g19's slide serrations were like the m&p's though. Those things are grippy!

My issued G23 RTF2 has the fish scale slide serrations. While they loook cool, they don't help at all.

Now if they were reversed, that would be an improvement.

ETA: I, too, wish Glock would go with M&P-style serrations. They work great.

Hmmmm... I'm wondering if a guy took his time with a tig welder, and kept the metal cool enough if the factory serrations could filled and and that milled in it's place.

Weren't the early RTF's "reversed gill"? I could have sworn I saw a Glock last year in the store that had the gills reversed from what these current RTF's have?

Edit: In fact I know they did because I was reading on the boards at the time of how the gills on these new pistols were opposite from the pic in the new Glock ad.

Speaking of serrations. A buddy of mine had some front serrations added, but said the company who did them was crap. Anyone know of a reputable company to add them?

Here is a pic from the robar site.
