ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2009 SHOT Show, opening today in Orlando, FL, will introduce three new pistols from GLOCK, Inc. - the G22 RTF2 with slide serration pattern as well as the G20 SF and G29 SF. (Logo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20070829/CLW090LOGO ) (Photo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20090115/CLTH061 ) The G22 RTF2 (Rough Textured Frame version #2) pistol will be featured in the #938 GLOCK, Inc. booth this week. The new Rough Textured Frame design has more than 4,000 raised pyramids on the front, rear and sides of the polymer receiver. The raised pyramids are also located on the thumb rests for increased grip traction. In addition, the slide on the G22 RTF2 has a new, modern look with crescent shaped serrations located at the rear of the slide. The newly designed frame is yet another feature on the GLOCK pistol that signifies GLOCK's commitment to perfection. "We have already had several major agencies commit to the G22 RTF2 and have had an outpour of interest from our Commercial and Law Enforcement distributors about our new product," said Director of Sales Craig Dutton. "We are looking forward to another record year in 2009 and with the addition of the G22 RTF2 pistol, it should be a very reachable goal!" A few days before sending GLOCK, Inc. employees to the SHOT Show in Orlando, they had the opportunity to visit with some deputies from the Paulding County Sheriff's Department in Georgia. During the visit, Corporal Mike Barker shot the G22 RTF2 at the GLOCK, Inc. Training Range and was impressed with the results. "The texture on the pistol allows for a great shooting grip. An officer can already be nervous in a tactical shooting scenario and this new feature will ease your mind knowing that even if you are only able to shoot with one hand, your grip will remain intact on the frame," said Corporal Barker. "The serrations on the slide also allow for easier slide operation because it is more ergonomically correct. It will make a great addition to your Law Enforcement arsenal." 10mm AUTO SF pistols The popular series of SF configured pistols became introduced to the industry at the SHOT Show in 2007 with the 21 SF full size in .45 caliber followed by the 30 SF subcompact .45 in 2008. These models have proven extremely popular in both the Law Enforcement and Commercial markets domestically and internationally and now customers can have these same qualities in the highly powerful 10mm AUTO ammunition with the release of the G20 SF and G29 SF pistols. As another option to the G20 SF, a six inch hunting barrel will be available and can be quickly swapped using the field stripping procedure. With the six inch barrel, shooters will truly get maximum performance out of their 10mm AUTO with remarkable accuracy. Team GLOCK Shooting Squad Captain and Champion shooter Dave Sevigny adds, "I really like the SF design since it approaches the 'feel' of the G34, G35 and G17 I have been so fortunate with while competing. GLOCK has another winner here. These pistols will appeal to those who want a powerful cartridge for Law Enforcement, self defense and hunting. Best of all, they have the other GLOCK qualities of reliability, tough Tenifer finish and the controllable GLOCK 'Safe Action' fire control system that is successful around the world." The GLOCK Standard Rail design will be retained on the three new pistols to allow the use of all GLOCK tactical lights, lasers and accessories.
