Glock 19 Gen5 ... FRT????

Glock experts? Help!

It's time for my first Glock ever. Only brand and models I don't own

So the PA model is Austria, the AU or UA is America. Great. I want the PA Austria just cause for giggles.

But what in the heck is the "FTR" business? I've read the G19 didn't have forward serrations but all do now...true? Some corrections were made to the slide rounding in the front within the G5...Looking into it has actually made this more confusing. With some selling gen5 G19s for 500 vs the regular 530, I'm worried my deal finding will lead me to an outdated Gen5 model.

What in the heck is the current SKU or model for the current Gen5 G19? I just can't figure it out

They added front serrations to all of them. I’m not sure the SKU actually changed though.

Best I can tell is the current model has serrations and no front strap cutout.

You'll want the serrations with how slick the new finish is

Here's a website which will indicate the product number for a specific Glock model. Usually just drop the "GL" from the beginning as that just seems to be Lipsey's stock number coding.

1911 Armorer

What the heck does FRT mean? Or FTR, since you have both spellings.
