Hello, Punisher, and Welcome to the Forum!

I do not have a Gen4 (yet!), both my G26 and G30 are Gen3, but I really like the idea of "customizable" grip. However, think about this: if you (like me) would buy a Gen4 for the customizable grip, I'd set it once, and then never ever ever have to tinker with it again. I'd be left with all the leftover pieces gathering dust.

Also, I had a chance to carry a buddies' G22 RTF2, IWB, and that sucker scraped the heck out of my skin. Never again! Or maybe, OWB, next time.:D

Just a couple of thoughts there, my $0.02 worth....

Is im not up on the Glock lingo so I don't know what the abbreviations stand for yet.
To add to Target1gunnery's post:

Gxx refers to Glock model number, of course. Substitute the "xx" with the 2-digit model number (G26 means Glock Model 26, and so on).

RTF means Rough Textured Frame. Glock has made major changes to the frames in each major generation change. RTF is the latest, of which there are (if I am not mistaken) in common circulation the RTF2 and RTF3, both of which apply to 4th Generation Glocks. Instead of a "pebbled" texture as from Gen1 to Gen4, the RTF frames have pointed nubs that stick out, the RTF2 is rougher than the RTF3 (the nubs on the RTF3 are more subtle).

RTF2 was offered as a factory option on late-issue 3rd Generation Glocks
RTF3 was standardized for 4th Generation Glocks
